Have we turned into a world of Faustian bargainers?
We owe German folklore that teaches a moral lesson of what to give up and what to keep, which many of us are confronted with in our daily lives. According to the legend, Faustus makes a pact with an evil spirit named, Mephistopheles, Mephisto or Satan in exchange for a moral compass rife with spiritual importance, and personal values for material gain. This benefit can be in the form of material riches, validation and admiration from others, status or knowledge of which is unattainable. This pact is woefully regrettable, because what is given up is priceless compared to what is received in the bargain. This legend begs powerful questions: What priceless things have we given up in exchange for some things that we eventually learned were of less value? Was it time with friends and family? Were they connections with others as we climbed the endless road to ambition and were trying to define ourselves socially or professionally, or was it giving in to emotions that never served us well that has led us to pathways of regret?
To our readers, writers and supporters, what things have we given up that were of greater value than those things that we have received? Can we and will we make better exchanges for our time, relationships and contributions to the world around us? May the summer bring you peace and solace.
” A Bargain is something you don’t need at a price you can’t resist.”
All the best,
