Today at Mass for the 15th Sunday in Ordinary Time, the word “eternal life” popped in my mind as a synonym for “kaizen,” continuous improvment.
The individual can choose to renew and grow every day and night, living an entire lifetime as an ever evolving creature. What happens next is viewed acccording to everyone’s personal experience and vision, but I suspect living life ever growing and evolving must lead to bright horizons over the rainbow.
When I am praying with the congregation for the “resurrection of the dead” I include the concept in my mind of people who in a particular time may be struggling or coasting sans gusto. Every person everywhere is empowered to give thanks and seize the day ever more authentically day by day.
