WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY?

WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY?

KNOWLEDGE may be revealed though never proven;

TRUTH may be discovered but never possessed.

BELIEF however, is a choice…

We write the lyrics or sing the song.

Others may clap

or sing along.

It’s never right

nor ever wrong

It simply is what it is.

LIVE SERVE & MOVE ALONG

LIVE SERVE & MOVE ALONG

Competitive spirit, the will of the weak
Line item listings
Of proof.
Wasted moments of life without purpose
Uncomfortably
Long of tooth.

So where are they now; What purpose was served
What evidence
Did  survive?
(Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Replicate
Signs of Life.)

Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.
Line item listings
Gone.
Service to Other; a life now with purpose
Confidence second to
None
Life again moving
Along.

A FEW BASICS

(1) MOTHER: Question everything or live the life of The Lemming.

(2) FATHER: Look it up in World Book.

(3) JIM: Do what you’re supposed to do when you’re supposed to do it (and don’t do what you’re not supposed to).

(4) MEISTER ECKHART: Trust God and do the Next Thing.

(5) LB GETTINGS: Spiritual, emotional and physical wellness are the rewards of reason tempered with faith. Approval? Not so much.. Lee.

(6) THE LEMMING:. Nobody warned me.

TOLSTOY REVISITED

TOLSTOY REVISITED

Advised,

The curious end their search,

The compliant announce their arrival,

Lovers abandon the subject of their affection and

Those for whom the unadorned Truth is all that matters,

Place a straight-backed chair in a corner of the room

And facing two blank walls devoid of distraction

Entertain themselves by attempting

To ignore a green rhinoceros.

FEALTY TO SELF AND TO OTHERS

lee_broom

Offering one’s sense of self in exchange for the approval linked with conformity to the agreed-upon beliefs of any given group encourages paralysis of creativity among individuals and discourages growth within the groups to which we pledge fealty. The anticipated rewards are stability and a heightened measure of safety.

Our decision on the matter probably occurred during childhood; some say before our second birthday. The rest of our life will be spent learning to live with our decision and using this information to guide us as we mingle with others.
