Have you ever become so connected to the constant demands being asked of you that you were not prepared for the time when they stopped. When the work was done, did you stand there wondering what you should do next?
Every thought that comes to us; every picture, movie, song, tv program, or conversation we choose to partake in; makes a comfy place within us, to draw more of the same to us. It's not complicated-- what we choose to surround ourselves with, both internally and externally, is the matter from which we create our lives.
"Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence." - Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956)
To journey from that darker road demands constant vigilance on the way we view our changing circumstances and the very thoughts we dwell upon. It is all about choice.
While on my journeys, I have come across a very wide span of beliefs...ideas that are working for people. Some I found too constrictive for me and others were far too broad or “fringie” to work for me. But of all the ideologies to which I was exposed, two stand out in my mind as very strong representatives of truth...and they are, seemingly, in direct opposition to each other. Both seem to make sense.
