This first post on my blog is about me and me alone.
What is my philosophy of life?
I am almost 56 years old and it feels like I have lived several lifetimes already. Time is such a strange thing. Time goes by so quickly, yet how do we measure it. Sometimes I think for me it gets measured in phases. I have heard others and I have even said of past segments of my life, “That was another lifetime ago.” The examples for me have to do with the ‘early years’, as most would say it, and then my ‘wife and mother’ stage, my ‘divorced and single parent’ stage and now my “new marriage, career builigng’ stage.
So what do the stages of my life have to do with my philosophy? Each new stage of my life starts out as a new, sometimes exciting chapter where many adjustments and acclimations ensue. Sometimes, a pattern of adjustment comes about and a certain equilibrium comes to be. The fluxes and flows of life are all attempts to come to some type of harmony with the environment we have created for ourselves and with others so that there is peace and accord within the realms of our lives. If we are not in harmony we are not in touch with our purpose in life.
What is that purpose? That purpose is to support the community and be in harmony with community, not only our fellow humans but all of the living and non-living parts of our world. Since many of us in this modern civilized world have removed ourselfs from direct contact with much of the natural community that supports us, no wonder we are not supporting our community toward harmony.
Well, this is enough for now. More post later on on this subject and more.
