Today, I am in a state of such erratic neurosis that it appears as if my brain is caught playing cards with a computer that is beating it ten to one. So much stress as of late has got me going again and I am just dying to kick back and relax a bit so why not share a nice little story for all of you while I am waiting for something to cheer me up? A new book entitled "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel turned out to be much better than I had assumed when my doubts nearly got the better of me since I am very wary of certain religious aspects when a certain page in the book caught my eye which pertained to this statement; don't make assumptions. Why do we make assumptions and why is it so important to think that something is one way or another? Should we deny our intuition or that gut-feeling we have occasionally that points out to us certain little details we miss when we look one way instead of another? No, it does not suggest we should not trust our instincts but we should acknowledge what we are saying first and understand who or what is being presented before us because to assume the form of one thing is to condemn another, that's all I need to say about that. When we assume things we paint a dismal picture of a most beautiful artifact, we place a veil to hide it from what it truly is at the center of its very being. We must first understand that whatever or whoever it is it resides before us for a good reason no matter if it presents itself for a positive or negative reason. Each day we face both bliss and adversity and those essences of life are a gift that we must explore thoroughly before we paint out what we think it may be in the contents of our slightly tunneled mind; we must be open to all possibilities and structures of existence. Yes this statement is very difficult to follow but it is vital beyond all reasoning. When we begin to see things as they really are we begin to see the image of our inner selves for we are all connected in one way or another. That is the true beauty of being humans, no matter what we look like, dress like, or work as we are all in this pitiful world together and we must be together for without each other, how can the foundation of our morals, routines, and very lives live on without aspects aligned or separate from ours? Answer, completely impossible. This is my two bits for today, peace and all that jazz writing friends!
