Thirsting for truth …
Listening to and gathering information for a newly deconstructed transition ~ finding holes and making lists.
The short answer for this existential truth is ~
I’ve heard from a trending source that it seems that EVERYONE is also experiencing this question ~
“Who am I? What am I doing? Is this meaningful? WHY do we have to have a purpose? Should I be doing something else? IS there something else?”
We’re in a wave of change ~
Some people are speaking up.
More important ~ some people are changing their point of view after speaking up.
But what about what Jeff Bridges said in this quote.
I tried it. I got HUGE kick back. The reason was, I have had some ugly secrets and mean people in my life.
Adult people ~ dysfunctional people ~ dangerous people ~ broken people
Who do not want to see me succeed.
I don’t give their names ~ they have to create their own karma. Also, I’ve had death threats from some of them. Again, that’s their karma and … I’m not stupid.
Seriously dude … I want nothing to do with any of them.
I do expect to be able to live my own life as I so choose without looking over my shoulder.
As is my right.
Which should be the right of everyone out there. To live in safety.
If an existential crisis is the worst thing that happens to me this year, that’s a great year!
I am consciously aware of the suffering of others and I won’t look away when I see people begging on the street.
Only people who feel it personally, and/or deny their part in that person’s suffering will look away when they see someone else in pain.
There’s a special place in hell for those who cause other people pain. IMO, that goes for people who use other people. But I digress.
I get a bit dramatic as I’m also writing my fifth novel ~ + gearing up for a new genre for the NaNoWriMo this year.
One is lighter. The other is darker.
It’s been a fun explore into the depths of humanity.
In a way, that’s my speaking up boldly. In a way that I am comfortable while also sharing all that I have learned over the course of a life time.
Off to do parent stuff.
For now ~ stay thirsty (for curiosity)
In peace and bold curiosity!
