"There was never any more inception than there is now,
Nor any more youth or age than there is now;
And will never be any more perfection than there is now,
Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now."
Much of what I'm reading argues (rightly, in my view) against the myth of "eternal progress" and urges us to focus on what is before us here and now. 2020 should have taught us something about this; ultimately the story we tell ourselves about being in control is at best a myth. (The guy in the White House is a pathetic model of to what the denial of this truth leads.)
Today is the day we have received (all is gift, grace); let us rejoice and be glad in it. I believe that is a good motto with which to begin the new year.
