Much of the Higher Octave audience would consider themselves “self-reliant” or “self-sufficient”, or at least striving to be so. I, too, am in that camp. But a series of recent personal events has caused me to consider a balance to this approach to life.
This episode is quite “off the cuff” and interrupts the Going Off-Grid series. But I felt compelled to share.
See below for notes.
And if someone overpowers one person, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not easily broken. ~Ecclesiastes 4:12, Holman Christian Standard Bible
I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor? ~Mother Teresa
There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother. ~Proverbs 18:24, New Living Translation
All will concede that in order to have good neighbors, we must also be good neighbors. That applies in every field of human endeavor. ~Harry S. Truman
Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real. ~Thomas Merton
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer. ~Ed Cunningham
To character and success, two things, contradictory as they may seem, must go together – humble dependence and manly independence; humble dependence on God and manly reliance on self. ~William Wordsworth
We will return to the Going Off-Grid series with an overview of my current off-grid home system.
