for everyday life … 04

from Sr. M. Renata Zürrlein, Deutschland

We generally have the awareness of what great importance it is that today we make all those entrusted to us capable of resisting.

People try from every side to take away the core of the personality. When the modern streams flood over us, everything is being done to break our backbone so that we become “slaves”. Therefore we must try now already to use counter measures.

It may be that it is difficult at all time to educate strong personalities. However today it is the most essential thing of all.”

September 4-8, 1950


IMPULSE

Slavish dependence is unworthy of a human being.

And yet: the chocolate in the cupboard, the Smartphone in the pocket, this series on TV—am I really free to also let these things go?

Everyone says it is this way and I think otherwise—am I really free to express my opinion?


Where do I feel my dependence?

Where do I give into myself?

In what areas do I want to and can I continue to grow as a personality?
