THIS CURIOUS WORLD.........
Henry David Thoreau said: "This curious world we inhabit is more wonderful than convenient; more beautiful than it is useful; it is more to be admired and enjoyed than used."
Maybe the reasons humans are so nerve shaken, exhausted, frustrated, unhappy, grumpy, aggressive, competitive, and self absorbed aren't all that complicated or difficult to identify? And even though identifying these things is the beginning point, the identifying isn't the most difficult.
The real difficulty is encountered in how enamored with the enmeshments people have become, and even though it all has left them nerve shaken, exhausted, frustrated, unhappy, grumpy, aggressive, competitive, and self absorbed, people remain extremely ambivalent about disengaging and relinquishing.
But even with that being the situation, there still remains a more nurturing way.
