I’m again at work with time and thought to expend, and the slight feeling that it’s been too long since I’ve contributed anything to UG. I’ve been rather busy lately, a few new things have come up for me to deal with and learn from – a good thing in itself whether or not the experience was entirely pleasant. Life is complex; it seems more and more to be a complicated string of matter strewn upon the floor of possibility. Funny how the more you know, the more you know you don’t.
Enough of that. It’s not even midday. Don’t you just love the idle, static moments of life in which you think and feel nothing, but rather experience? What a relief those instances can be. Sometimes I’ll be walking and just look up at the sky and be so incredibly grateful. Other times I’ll have things in the back of my mind such as a problem plaguing humanity at any given moment, and realise that tomorrow’s deadline or how my hair is today really don’t matter. Unimportant things clog our minds way too much, changing our perspectives and attitudes.
So the next quiet moment you get to look at the sky, or smell a flower, or feel the grass, or feel music, whatever- remember what’s important. And that’s you. Building yourself up and learning and growing, for that’s all we can individually do to impact the world around us.
When bad things happen to me I’m reminded of who I want to be. The forces that seem to push against me are really the opportunities that appear in order that I can see what I’m really made of. My friends of UG, keep enduring. For spring is coming.
In abrupt conclusion, the point of this blog was for me to figure out what this new season means to me. In this moment, it means redemption and hope. I’m getting pretty corny here, and vague in philosophy, but it’s what is there in my mind right now, whether or not I’ll read this over later on and think I’m being silly. We’re all this or that at one time or another, so I guess there’s no need to worry about that sort of stuff.
I love your optimism....I really WANT to feel at peace with the tiny things, but everytime I feel this nagging anxiety that something is wrong and that I may be wrong, although I have nothing to lose. Irrational, I guess.
Spring is coming ? of course you are in australia ... hehe because here around , It seems that automn is coming ...
I like the way you talk about flower and gras, you are not silly, and less boring than "serious" philosophy , believe me
