"There is not time for us to clasp a thing and crush it and fling it away to the dust." from "The Gardener" by Rabindranath Tagore
‘Clasp a thing and crush it and fling it away’ – that is us today. That is exactly what we Turnstones do with supermarket plastic milk bottles. When our milk was delivered in glass bottles to the doorstep, it was often stolen, our children left without milk for breakfast.
So we see sin and the effects of sin: someone clasped our milk bottle, drank the milk and flung the bottle away; we were forced to buy supermarket milk, and crush and fling away the plastic bottle. At least that is recycled nowadays.
Let’s use our time and resources to let the dust bloom, not accumulate our rubbish.
