Life... brought us all here or rather the questioning of life's meaning/truth while at the time receiving insufficient answers by those in charge;
and even worse but no fault of their own by those who love us. Boy! This life can be quite lonely and confusing, my first 30 years is characterized by
loneliness and confusion.
I've been blessed to have learned so much in this first 30 years , admittedly ( wishing I could stop at learned so much haha)most of it has been
forgotten and weirdly yet equally surprising relearned and forgotten again at the same time knowing I've forgotten some important #! Alas, I am
hoping I have not forgotten the art of a coherent delivery. Thankfully life is humourous as well lol.
One thing ive learned is that Life is a metaphor and through the experience of its description we relate to one another, and feel.. not so alone. In
my opinion solving lonelyness is right up there with things like solving world hunger, beauty pageant level ambition. Peace of mind is briefly
attained when we answer life's mysterys even if we forget we can make loneliness the lonely concept; a forgotten pain that happened to us and is not
in the process of happening. In this vein we find platforms such as ATS, and god bless all of you, btw I'm not religious and just recently
developing spiritually so when I say lord or God please do not take offense, infact before June this year I called myself an atheist but I sincerely
believe that ATS isYy doing the lords work 😉 .
My name is anathema's effgy, of course that is not my mother's given name. although, it's a fitting description of how I've seen myself in
comparison to society, certainly from the veiw of my internal critic. OK I've been saying first 30years I've only lived 28 but we can round up and
still be telling the truth, right ? Here's a quote that describes my thoughts well,
George Elliot-" Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact."
wait wrong one, I'm begining to think the quote book that I`m pulling from might be parodying me... dammit! OK here's the quote I want
"I call that mind free which jealously
guards its intellectual rights and
powers, which calls no man master,😚
which does not content itself with a
passive or hereditary faith, which opens
itself to light whencesoever it may come,
which receives new truth as an angel from Heaven."-
WILLIAM ELLERY CHANNING
That is the beautiful expression of how I try and aspire to live my life now.. doing everything almost exactly the same as before, but knowing why I
do it; why right is right, or simply why I do anything at all. with all that and saving a lot for later -as all things have a good time and place,
and seeing that right now it's 1:48am while writing my introduction thread, I will leave off with a question to you that I'd love to know yalls answer
I want to make clear that I am in no way alluding to my discovering or foreknowledge of it or it's answer, this is not a trick question. here goes,
If you discover the secret to life, revealing all its knowledge and truth if you told someone else that secret, would it still remain a secret?
is the mere telling of a secret even if only once a breach of contract, null and void?I think yes, that it is.. assuming there's even a secret to
life or an answer, and that someone did or could discover it, if they told anyone then it would no longer qualify as "the secret to life" it would
just become one of the millions of fortune cookie answers people give when they don't want to hear or help fix your problems,yet wanting to appear
knowledgeable. having said all that if any of you have found it! don't tell anyone!
I'm hoping this was not too lengthy or verbose and that my silliness yet non silliness is easily understood thanks for reading and having me here,
ask me whatever and I'll always try to give you about a 70%honest answer. have a goodnight /morning 😃
