Who is the Parent?

November 18



Who is the Parent?


There are more liars in my head than anywhere else and they will say the most errant nonsense, making it sound totally convincing.  First of all they use other people’s inventories to leverage me into believing that I am just what is needed to lift each person’s universe from despair; then they insist that my life will be incomplete until I have saved nations and secured borders, all the while failing to mention the deadly nature of these attempts.  None of this is a problem unless I listen.  Liars’ lying causes me no trouble until I accept and act on this bunk.  This is where a thorough inventory saves the day.  When I am clear about the truth of who and what I am I can’t be easily led astray.  I know I am G-d’s child and the resemblance can be strong, but today that burden is not mine to carry, so I can stay busy being me.



Cheap advice comes from thinking; dear advice comes from experience






If you had to choose would it be liberty or hope?
Liberty is highly recommended but without hope
How would you know you were at liberty?

Transversely if you had no liberty
How could you have hope?
Removal of liberty removes the possibility of hope.

So why ask for a choice to be made.
Well that’s the joy of liberty, I am free to ask anything,
And you are free to imagine anything and hope for more.
