Consecrate: (v) to declare something sacred
The failure of the human race: that were once practical are now relegated to idealism without objection.
This prompts the need for us to consecrate certain emotions, principles and ideas as unchanging–otherwise we will lose them forever because
they will eventually be considered out of date.
I consecrate myself to loving my neighbor.
I consecrate that judging other people will always be unacceptable.
I consecrate patriotism as honoring my country–even being willing to challenge it.
I consecrate knowing that God dies when my love of humanity diminishes.
I consecrate that there is nothing in life that is ever quality which remains mediocre.
I consecrate telling the truth–because it is the only factual way to say “I love you.”
I consecrate understanding that being kind, courteous and gentle is not weak, but the only way to get a portion of the inheritance of the Earth.
And finally, I consecrate myself never to be satisfied with who I am, simply because no one is presently objecting to my vices.
