Things cannot look all right so long as I
Am not all right who see–therefore not right
Can see. The lamp within sends out the light
Which shows the things; and if its rays go wry,
Or are not white, they must part show a lie.
The man, half-cured, did men not trees conclude,
Because he moving saw what else had seemed a wood.
So much of what is wrong in the world comes from wrong perceptions of a darkened conscience. This world is terribly sick. Each of us is responsible in our tiny circles of influence to do what we can to make things right, but that can only happen when we have our priorities divinely appointed.
