I think who and what we are is a combination of our reactions to all of the things you mentioned . <br />
As we all know.. our reactions will all be different based on our belief and moral systems... <br />
That is how we all grow up to be different individuals.
DNA is the basic. Your parents and surroundings while you go through life experiences is another.
It is vital to self-understanding and spiritual growth to sit with ourselves, without any outside distractions, and learn to watch ourselves think. In that way, we can see that what angers us defines our values, and what makes us sad are issues that require healing in ourselves, what brings us joy is what nurtures our soul, what frustrates us is what we need to overcome, and what intrigues us is what we need to study next. The Great What Is walks that journey with us, and answers questions often in unique and unexpected ways (nobody walks their spiritual path alone although sometimes it feels like it).
Every experience, of every moment, of our lives, incorporated and blended, into all others lives.that we have touched, and those who have touched ours..isn't this, how deep, your feelings, are? In times like we are in now, and what may lay, in our futures, all of us are blended together, already...<br />
now, ain't we???<br />
i try to look at alll of the good, as there is much good, out there....this is what I believe in...<br />
