Is what you're living for worth dying for?

Jackie Gleason said this: "Be kind to the people you meet on the way up, because you're going to meet the same people on the way down."  Can we envision a better state of affairs in the human psyche? Never fear evil tidings. Are you down and out about the price of gas these days or the preposterous cost of living in the material world? Are you in the abyss of pornography or some other pit that enslaves? Are you going through a divorce or just plain full of dejection? Know this then. If we are not broken, then we're quite comfortable in our own shortcomings. If you decide to read my forthcoming book "I Stole the Turtle and the Octave Rule," you will begin to see some eccentric but realistic portions of a human being's life. That life happens to be mine. By the time you reach the ending, you will have discovered that a saint has a past and a wrongdoer has a future. You will also be able to delve into these things: Gentleness, kindness, self-control and quietness, an ethereal quality of calm and balm. To live in total gratitude brings no disappointments. When we decide to live in the OCTAVE RULE, stress is minimized and we find true gold in a silvermine. In the crucible of life we need to seek after chastity, humility, patience and love, contrary to popular attitudes. When we do this we dispel sloth, despair, lust for power and acrimony. You know even the most insignificant person on this earth has worth. Always remember that HASTE MAKES WASTE. Consider this: " He who loves money will not be satisfied with money; nor he who loves wealth, with gain: this also is vanity" (Eccl 5:10) RSV.
