12 tips för 2012 från herr Claiborne

Ni minns väl att Shane Claiborne och hans kompisar ockuperade Wall Street några år innan de där andra kom och gjorde dem sällskap?

Här är Shanes tips på hur vi kan utveckla ett radikalt lärjungaskap under det katastrofala året som kommer:

12.  Do something really nice – that no one knows about.

11. Spend more money on other people than I spend on my self.  Love my neighbor as I love myself.  And love myself as I love my neighbor.

10. Laugh often… especially at advertisements that try to convince me that I must buy more stuff in order to be happy.

9. Learn a new life skill – like carpentry, pottery, or canning vegetables.  Teach someone else a life skill I know how to do.

8.  Love a few people well, remembering that what is important is not how much we do but how much love we put into doing it.

7.  Write a letter to someone I need to say thank you to.  Write another letter to someone I need to ask to forgive me.

6.  Track down a critic or someone I disagree with and take them to lunch.  Listen to them.

5.  Compliment someone I have a hard time complimenting… and mean it.

4.  Choose life.  Do something regularly to interrupt the patterns of death – do something to end violence, bullying, war, capital punishment and other mean and ugly things.

3.  Pause before every potential crisis and ask “will this matter in 5 years?”

2.  Get outside often and marvel at things like fireflies and shooting stars.  And regularly get my hands into the garden… so when I type on the computer I can see dirt under my fingernails.

1.  Believe in miracles.  And live in a way that might necessitate one.
