“Good-humor is a philosophic state of mind; it seems to say to Nature that we take her no more seriously than she takes us. I maintain that one should always talk of philosophy with a smile.”
― William James, The Varieties of Religious Experience
Another Bright and Beautiful day here in the land Afar…. (Cleveland… hahahahaha)
Yesterday was rather chilly & cloudy so I spent the entire day and evening in my ‘cave’. I finished The American Soul Rush’ (Goldman), soaked up a few more essays from On The Edge of the Future, finished another chapter of America and the Religion of No Religion (Kripal), absorbed human transformative capacity with The Future of the Body (Murphy)…and….this morning my thoughts feel mushy, much like the feeling I used to get after an intense Philosophy class (philosophic hangover)…going deeeeeep…deeeeeeeper…..even deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeper…..only to realize, I am merely standing on wet sand far from the deep. HA!
I have been pondering Spiritual Privilege (Goldman’s theoretical construct)…while examining my spiritual privilege…which has no doubt influenced every bit of who I am today.
Here I am… pondering how all this fits into my ‘world task’ hmmmm….hmmmm…..hmmmmm….
Today: Lose Mind and Embrace Senses….hug a few trees, breathe, Smile with the Sun and cherish authentic Gratitude for Awareness, Depth, and ability to endorse every moment as Sacred.
