Heroism in the Pursuit of Happiness:
Power and love Through Life’s Peaks and Pits
Heroism in the Pursuit of Happiness is a celebration of an all surpassing divine love that redeems our hybrid mix of good and evil, wisdom and foolishness. The idea of hybrids is to get the best and minimize the worst of any two fruits, veggies, cars and so on. The hybrid car can be battery-run when we run out of gas. We human hybrids “run the good race” until we run out of will power and must find the reserve battery of our “higher power”. We need spiritual heroes like St. Paul to reveal our
human hybrid mix of foolishness and wisdom, weakness and strength. Paul had a strong will “to fight the good fight” against evil but was shocked to discover his moral weakness. “What I should do, I do not do. What I should not do, I do.” Who can save us when our will power falls short?
How do we “let go and let God be God” as we move through the crises of our life span?
