Quote of the Day – July 12 2012

“We say nothing essential about the cathedral when we speak of its stones. We say nothing essential about Man when we seek to define him by the qualities of men.”
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery

So once I have agreed on the importance of being honest to myself and in my expression how do I define myself? Am I my gender or my sexual preference? What does that mean anyway? If I like other men does that mean I group myself automatically with everyone else who prefers the same sex and like what they like and act with the same mannerisms? What if I occasionally like looking or being with women? Does that give me another set of rules?

Am I the religion I was born into? Does what I believe make me better / different /chosen / more worthy of being saved than anyone else? How about where I was born? Wow people seem to think all kinds of things about others based on geography.

Sorry, Neither my religion, my nationality or my sex or preference can or will define me. They may give me perspective but I know what a trap that can be. Perspective limits and so from my point of view, we can only benefit from seeing life from as many different perspectives as possible. I guess in a way you can say I collect boxes tho I don’t take very good care of them and I find any one dissolving under me after awhile.
Blessings, G

On Boxes

If all beliefs resemble boxes in which we enclose ourselves as David Icke states then we owe it to ourselves to exist in the largest most dimensionally transcendant box possible. Ones that encompass multitudes of possibilitied.

After all who wants to spend a lifetime in a shoebox made up of shoulds and should nots. Living like that may offer the ‘safety’ of limited much as a prison or other institution might but I can’t see a difference between living safely and living in fear. Here’s to taking chances with our lives and to living, thinking and being bold and free.
