There are not enough ways in which to apologize to those of you who have been faithfully following a non-prolific blogger as myself, so instead I will thank you that you do, and have, and -hopefully- continue to do so!
Thank you!! Life allows us to make so many choices as to seem overwhelming at times, though I know that to be not true! However, it is true that we (I especially) tend to be creatures of habit! And it is more difficult (for me) to break bad habits than good, and twice that to set good habits in the place of bad! But I continue to endeavor to do so, for, despite the roller-coaster that is Living, There are things I wish/want to do more than others, regardless of their place in my “habit scale”, and so long as I have a voice (…and/or fingers with which to type), I choose to share it, so long as there are people willing, wanting to listen!
It is humbling, and remains to be so to me, that we are so Loved, and so Blessed, with each and every moment we are given. In spite of our foibles, faults, and sinful nature(s)! And so it is in humility that I now do my best, to share the God-given talent with which I’ve been Blessed, and put my voice on “the page”!
Life has indeed been full of the challenges, presented to us all, to see the silver-lining, the light at the end of the tunnel, and many other worthy clichés used to express the sentiment “There’s always something Good to see, and always a reason why!” In other words, it’s been a challenge for me to so do, even though I know it to be true (there’s that poet in me again)! Which is weird, because, if you know something to be true, shouldn’t it be easy to see, acknowledge, recognize???
At any rate, here we are, you there, me here, separated by time, space, yet co-existing on the same planet, in the same time and space, though not logistically (you’ll not be reading this until at least I’m done typing it, perhaps a bit longer… unless of course you’re clairvoyant, in which case you may well have read it some time before I wrote it!, but still remains that separation)! A paradox! But something we know to be true!
So, I seem to be stuck on “truth” thus far in the post, so let’s run with it, shall we? What is “true”, and contrariwise, what is “false”? As both are defined by perception, does that not make them both imaginary?
And yet, we are so eager to stake our Lives upon our definitions of such imaginings. Are they really “our” Lives to begin with? Kind of hard to lay claim to something you had no hand in the Creation of, or lasting of, isn’t it? As previously posted, We are “in control” only of our choices , all else is in the hands of a Higher Power! So why are struggling so hard to inflict other people with what we think to be true? We would be much better off worrying about our own choices, and let others make theirs, we’ll know in the end who was “right”! Let us not strive to inflict others with what “we believe”, and instead struggle with all of our might to be as we believe (… or know) we should be!
Where is “all this” coming from? Well, I’ve been doing a lot of listening lately, to the messages my Universe has been providing! Among other things, “Don’t forsake your talents!” They are Gifts, which we are ALL given, whether we choose to use them or not. They are not the same for us all, for some it is in athleticism, others in oration, others still in reasoning, but in ALL it comes as an art! And beautifully at that! Do you look at shapes and see beauty? Or a playing field? Or numbers? Or words? Or colors? Patterns maybe, or perhaps even in the simple joy of learning?? Where you see beauty, therein lies your talent(s)! This is a multiversal truth! Second only to my own personal favorite, “Omnia vincit Amor!” (“Love conquers all!”, basically!)
Seek ye therefore Love (Charity), and Beauty, therein will you find the truth about Life, the common thread(s) which we all share, though we all do not share the same vision! Therein might we ALL find, together, Peace, and Harmony, and if together, Charity (Love)! No greater “truths” can we know, and anything else, though not necessarily “false”, is certainly superfluous by comparison! Life is too short to worry about being right, let’s just do right, and our “truths” will not only become deeper, more personal, but more shared by those whom we invite into our Lives!
Blesséd be all! Until next time…
