Would you recognize an angel,hiding in plain sight?
Would you see the struggles of a brave soul, hidden right in front of you?
Would you understand the simplest of requests ,hidden in the face of a friend?
How would we know and see something for what it really is if we are not tuned rightly, not by what we want to see, but what is actually there?
People come to others, believing that the others are wiser and stronger than they. It is not always the case,no matter how the latter would choose to dismiss their own struggle in favor of helping another.They choose to be stoically convinced that leaving their own struggle behind ,will prove they are stronger for it.
Humanity has a hard job ahead of itself. It has to learn to balance struggle and strength,with wisdom and weakness.We can conjure up all sorts of “self-help-isms”,and still not help a damned thing. We are limited beings. That’s a FACT. We are not IMMORTAL in these limited bodies. What surpasses the mere physicality of it all is ,someone ELSE’S Spirit…GREATER than all of ours combined!
I expect varied commentary , on that point alone. I don’t need agreement, for it to be worthy of meditating upon. I don’t really need a “like”, or an “atta -girl”…that is so astute! Or the” hey ,I see a lot of intelligence in that” …my answer to all those is a whopping whoop-dee-doo…my wisdom isn’t SQUAT…I don’t have multiple degrees of glory to back me up on my thesis riddled conjecture about humanity’s quirkiness… I have one…a G.E.D. I don’t expect to be in the same category of those who spent 20 years ,pondering to themselves the meaning of life or those who hold in highest regard their Sophist type opinionated versions of wisdom.
