Keeping spirituality simple

Oprah had some pretty confident shows on spirituality in connection with her "best life" theme to open 2009 last week and this. How then shall we live? Rabbi Irwin Kula said it well and simply: Learn something every day; do something kind every day; be grateful. That boils down an awful lot of theology and commandments and makes a do-able to-do list.

Three commandments to keep each day? Sigh. That's more than my truly human spirit can manage. Do you think I could get away with fulfilling just one a day? An act of kindness on Monday, a little learning on Tuesday, a splash of gratitude on Wednesday? I think I could manage that. Maybe.
