Some Thoughts. . . .

When in doubt about what to do;  the human thing to do is one which will contribute to humanity’s growth.

*****

And without memory,  one has no idea of how the past deposits its residual in the present nor what the present can do to frame the future.

*****

The one requiring more learning, more education is the one who feels the pinch of the harness most.

*****

To hold two opposing views in mind and still function is a sign of a mature intelligence.

*****

The bottom line of all behavior is the preservation of one’s self.  When all holds are not barred, the one holding one’s own life is the behavior of choice.

*****

To delve into a psyche without being asked is to burglarize a house.

*****

We cling to old beliefs, regardless of the damage they have caused, regardless of change in the world,  often because we think we will bury our parents forever.  If we believe like they did,  we think we keep them alive.  And somehow think we fail them again as we have when we were children.

*****

The heart will determine what the eyes see.  And put into the head the meaning of it all.

*****

Some prayers seem to be answered and some are not.  The final question should be, why not mine?

    Some astonishing insights. One of my favorites “to delve into a psyche without being asked is to burglarize a house”. What a wonderful metaphor that speaks an important truth.
