I’ve sometimes wondered what kind of job security a wise person would or could ever have?… (because any wise person has to be able to make mistakes) It would be foolish to feel other-wise…
…I would’ve asked one of them directly myself,
…except I’m aware enough to accept that I’ve probably met a lot of wise people in my life,
…but I wasn’t wise enough myself when I passed them in life
…to formulate the question
…and I would’ve have been in far too much of a hurry back then to have waited for a wise reply…who’s got time for that?…wisdom is so slow in showing up…it’s wasting so much of everyone’s time…
…ever had that feeling? …like, if you’d of just waited a little longer, you’d of seen something that would’ve helped you prevent a mistake that you went on to make…but didn’t have to…and you ‘see’ that now…
…that if you had only waited just a little longer? (you’re feeling your feelings here, btw…in case you didn’t recognize that.) Anyway,
that’s not hindsight talking. That’s our truth. This is also the truth:
We’re not really interested in finding truthful answers…we mostly like playing with complicated questions in our virtual amoral worlds…of our minds…Yet…
We are not avatars. We are imaginators. We are stuck imagining catastrophes.
We can use our imaginations in kinder ways. That’s the good news.
…like imagining the ways would like to try to love in the world today
Just imagine…wouldn’t that feel better? It could be our secret gift to the rest of us.
