So how do we......if we don't????
On Maundy Thursday last week, I was reading a post from Country Parson and aside from the fact I found it to be a very intriguing post, there was a comment from Lucy that I found provocative. Lucy's comment had to do with "loving one's neighbor as oneself" with the caveat that some persons don't really love themselves very much.....
Their posts sort of rolled around in my head for a few hours and wouldn't you know, in the evening, I came upon another thought provoking quote that seemed to be in a similar vein of loving oneself.....or not!
The question is not
"why am I so infrequently the person I really want to be,
but why do I so infrequently want to be the person I really am?
Quote from Oriah Mountaindreamer
Do you find your mind tracking a thought long after you've read it, sort of percolating and waiting as with a funnel to pour in the next bit of relevant information? Do you think those moments of funneling are coincidence? Do you attribute them to a higher force that is leading you in a direction that you may or may not want to go? Or do you not bother to think about that kinda stuff at all?
