This journey we call life is interesting.
There are highs and lows. Ups and downs.
There’s no way to accurately predict where this journey will take us.
All we can control is how we flow with the process.
Sometimes we rise to the occasion…. sometimes we fall flat on our faces.
None of us have arrived at perfection. We all have flaws and probably some regrets to go along with them. That’s life.
If we’re lucky, we’ll be learning and growing until we pass on to the next phase of existence.
It is with this in mind that I encourage us all to be kind to others. Extend grace to others.
That doesn’t mean you should be a doormat or allow people to violate your boundaries. It just means that we should be careful not to judge others harshly. Keeping in mind that none of us are without flaws is a good place to start.
Have a great week.
Sending good vibes.
As I sit here tonight, I am reminded of my intense love of philosophy. I was liberated from the prison of self-hate as a result of my relationship with philosophy.
I’ve learned that philosophy is more than reading the historical writings of great minds. This is part of it but, when one tries to live out philosophical concepts, we become face to face with our limitations. We come face to face with our programming and all of those things that make us who we are.
I’ve been reading a lot of Plato and listening to a lot of Cornel West lately and I feel a greater degree of awakening happening with me at my core. I feel challenged to share the journey of growth via the kind of wrestling that philosophical study leads to. It is a painful wrestling that lasts for as long as one is engaged.
I’m not really sure how to bring this to you, the reader, in a neat little package so…. I’ll simply share it in the only way I know how. Be aware my friends, it’s going to get messy. It has to.
Thanks for stopping by.
I love you.
