Life examined

Not all things written or said are wise, neither are all things wise written or said. Thus, I would rather write more foolish stuff in the hope of hitting something wise.

What is a life not ponder upon? “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”- 1 Peter 3:15 Even for faith, we should always seek to understand the truth as we know it and thus be able to explain it clearly. For the ones with no declared faith, Socrates would say, “the greatest good of a man is daily to converse about virtue, and all that concerning which you hear me examining myself and others, and that the life which is unexamined is not worth living

No matter what your beliefs may be, I wish for you to be always curious and open-minded. To be always asking questions of yourselves and others. To listen before you judge and to hear before you speak. To close off one’s mind before the argument is made is to escape into one’s own world and a sign that your world may not be as accurately portrayed as you may believe.

We are all pilgrims in this world of the unknowns. There is no loss in discussing our individual experiences that we may learn from it. The only loss is when one does not participate in the discussion. Join in the discussion and explore, for at the most you will learn where not to go.
