Here simply to share matters that inspire me and what I believe in; along with other things that draw my attention and interest. My posts come from favorite books, what I've written myself, things I research, etc. I will always leave the source for where I find information. ☮♥
Humans have a tendency towards smugness. We like to believe we are the highest and the only form of intelligent life. In a universe as vast as that which we live in, such an attitude is arrogant. Just as there are many forces in the universe that we do not yet understand, so there are also dimensions and beings of life we do not yet recognize or understand. There will always be those who fear contact with any being or energy outside the physical plane. Usually, the ones most vehement about it also fear contact with other humans outside of their race, sex, and religion. What one fears, one will often deny and try to destroy.
And maybe this is as it should be, for when life loses all of its mystery, it loses all of its vitality as well.
Growing up may mean putting some of the things of childhood away, but it should never mean putting the spirit of childhood away. For when the spirit is put away, the joy and wonder of life are put away as well. Then growing up is nothing more than aging without the growing.
