I allow myself to make mistakes, to learn, to grown up. I am sorry in case my words, or what I share here on ShortAndSweet.Us may upset you, or appear to be foolish; I feel to have good intentions, and I don’t claim to be “correct” or absolute; while writing I pause a lot and be silent.
I just allow myself — living in the land of the brave and free — to expose my own ignorance, by challenging myself to put into words what is maybe only reserved for grown ups?
… a false concept, entertained and believed in can keep us in the dark, maybe our whole life.
Possibly the biggest and most subtle false concept is our identity as “I am this body”.
We might start to discover that I AM points to Consciousness.
I AM — the most simple sense of being Aware: overlooked, rejected and dismissed in “this world”…
“Making sense” is needed in the mechanical world, but it is too clunky, too limited to understand “the things of God.”Love your neighbor as yourself
We all sit in the same boat and we are instructed in the Bible to love our neighbor as yourself; how to allow that? Love cannot be forced.
In the spirit of love and forgiveness I invite you to consider my words; not for a conclusion, not for another philosophy, but to experience and share, here and now; to pierce the veil, the mask of our person. To experience beyond the confinements of our own conditioning and comfort zone. To experience that Life is more than our person is aware of; that Life/God is generous and worthwhile living.
My own person is usually too quick with opinions and selfish judgments, busy to survive as a separate-self; hiding in the dark, instead to step into the light of relentless openness.
Yes, I will miss the mark, I make mistakes; but please, don’t just dismiss my sharing here and walk away, but tell me what you see as my blindspot?
God/Life gave us the gift of mind and speech; let’s help each other to exercise it wisely.
Instead of watching TV, hunting for fun or distractions in “this world”, I sit down and do something that deeply resonates in my heart; I don’t want to start a club or a church, but maybe I meet you as a friend in this marvelous existence.
