Time to think
Imagine a place where you had time to think beyond life’s current vicissitudes.
Sadly, too much else gets in the way.
Perhaps you see it as a luxury or self-indulgent but I’d wager you’d come to life with a different perspective.
You might not; things might stay exactly the same. But I’m convinced that so many of the world’s problems could be ameliorated if not changed for the better if only we sat down to think.
I’m not saying you don’t think but it’s mostly if not exclusively about self-preservation or maintaining the status quo.
As I’ve said in a number of previous posts, what would happen if we applied our thinking to: a) the compass, image and lived experience of a more beautiful would?; and b) (importantly) we lived the questions?
Perhaps then we might “…without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer” — Rilke.
