I must say that I am impressed and intimidated by the minds at work on this site. I read the entries posted and I am so blown away by some of the depth you all seem to express. I think it is incredible that we can come together and expand and elaborate our ideas and beliefs in such a friendly and civil manner.
The dialogue between Kevin and Amanda was respectful, honest, and intelligent. Well done team, well done.
I think that ultimately all the concepts we have been exploring as of late have no real answer, for me it is simply exciting to reach out and share ponderings and potentially stretch my own ideas and understandings through simply sharing and swapping ideas with other individuals who have an interested in thinking. It feels like most of the time we are on such a conveyer belt of life, essentially looking to get through our day as fast as we can so we can go home, veg out, and sleep only to begin it again the next day.
There is a 2 day reprieve called the weekend, which usually ends up flying by so quickly that before I feel as though I have blinked, it’s Monday and we begin again. And for what? Where is the life in that!
If nothing else, this blog has given me the reason to commit to myself for thirty minutes everyday. Thirty minutes every day to sit and think about what it’s all about and breathe. Just breathing, reading, thinking, and writing; all things I don’t do enough of. The effect of these thirty minutes results in a more deliberate me. My scenes at work are made up of more specific and precise moments because I have allowed myself the time to color inside the lines. To make sharper choices.
Not that the sloppiness of spontaneity is not important and wonderful, but again it goes back to balance. A little of this and a little of that creates a beautifully personal, well-thought-out, and wildly expressive portrait of how I want to be and who I am in the world.
Now onto the next topic…
Matthew… You said you wanted to discuss a belief. What about beliefs? Maybe we could look at human construct and how that relates to beliefs. I think now that the Olympics are on that could be a very intriguing and inspiring topic. So I’ll ask you all first and share my opinion on the matter tomorrow!
What do you think human construct is and how does it relate to beliefs? limiting and otherwise?
