Separating the useful from the useless and discerning between what builds us up and what makes us sink into an abyss is fundamental! In a time where people are used and things are loved, the need to arises and make order asking questions. Is everything useful ?

Are we loving or using each other?

Are we willing to put aside what is useless? What is superfluous and what is the gain in leaving it?

It’s time to ask questions Who will be able to give us answers? Are we willing to listen? Are we willing to see?
