Scattering the Sparks
When we lose someone we love, the energy that kept our love alive
Is given to you who loved that precious someone.
Like a fire, kept going until our love leaves,
And the sparks are scattered into and blown about
By the winds.
Getting One's House In Order
Spring Cleaning: Getting One's House in Order
Media, screens, popular opinion, the news... it's good to remember:
"People who don’t have their own houses in order
Should be very careful before they start going out
To try to reorganize the world." ~ Jordan Peterson
AND... when starting to change the world, it's best to start with oneself.
"The Sovereignty over oneself is called Liberty." ~ Albert Pike
"The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself; to be conquered by yourself is of all things most shameful and vile." ~ Plato
These are important considerations, indeed!
When a thing hurts your eyes, stop looking at it.
When it hurts your ears, stop listening.
When it hurts your heart, stop justifying it.
Walk away, breathe, and find joy.
