Solace After Solitude

 

“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”
― Virginia Woolf

 

Too long I hid away
thinking that in solitude
I would discover meaning
I learned much
but the very things that brought me here
that I escaped
stayed unresolved
Tho I lived in peace
I was not peaceful
Too many others carried with me
in my heart.
I spoke to their echoes
but only I echoed back
Now I return
to resolve the past
to dissolve the lie
of my old lives
Only this way can outer peace join inner
and fractures start to heal.
— G A Rosenberg

“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one…just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

I am so grateful for the knowledge of (most of) my own shortcomings. It often stops me from being critical of others. It’s easy to criticize and its fun. There is that kind of sick guilty pleasure in it and so many people who can be said to deserve it. People in positions of power and authority are targets by their very presence. Yet being critical of others far too often serves as a smokescreen for our own flaws. If I criticize the lady who cut in front of me in the grocery check-out, perhaps no one will notice that I have 30 items in my cart in the express lane. It may even make me forget about it. Far better for me to work on my own stuff. This isn’t as easy as it may seem . I’ve been working on it however.
Blessings, G
