I Believe We Are Here To Learn

We Are Here To Learn From One Another 1,334 People

    Superfluous.

    The conquest of the superfluous gives a greater spiritual excitement that the conquest of need. Man is a creation of desire, not a creation of need. G. Bachelard (Psychoanalysis of Fire)

    Lateral Moves And Perching Birds

    It isn't all about the goal line. It just isn't. I'm not sure why, but we are taught from a young age to aspire to great things. Much is made today of the Cinderella fantasy; that there is a happily ever after, for example. Women's groups hate that young girls are subliminally...

    Life, The "Father"

    In all the comings and goings of my paths, I always knew in my heart that even though everything changes, sometimes nothing really changes because everything stays here, within me. It takes time for me to realize what kind of step I should take. Then, something „talks“ to me...

    I believe we are here to breed. As a by product of evolution we have the capacity to effect change through learning but we must not forget the burden of responsibility that comes with that... to filter out the rubbish and teach.

    The Internal Fight

    An old Cherokee man teaches the life to his grandson. A fight takes place inside me, he says to the boy. A terrible fight between two wolves. The one is bad: it is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greediness, arrogance, pity on itself, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, vanity...

    The answer is: I believe it is important what YOU have to say. I may just be enjoying the present. Another friend pointed cleverly that we - givers- require energy to be who we are. Sometimes, that energy is drained by someone or a situation that needed. So, I am writing this...
