What to Strive For Among Our Odd Circle

Mistah Charley Ph.D. Sent me this quote.  Thank you

“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.  Do Justice, Now!  Love Mercy, Now! Walk Humbly, Now!
 

You are not obligated to complete the work,
 

but, neither are you free to abandon it.”

 It got me thinking about the nature of the odd club of bloggers that we frequent every day.   This is just my point of view, and you can take it or leave it as you wish.

I think that as a group, we all can agree that things cannot continue the way that they are going.  We are all trying to come to grips with the changes that are needed for us to make it through those changes.  None of us have the one true answer for making the grade.  

So what we do is hold one-sided conversations with those who will listen.  We listen to their one-sided conversations and try to rub the two ideas together to see if they will strike a spark.  The comments heard on the conversations add to the mix and allow us a refining fire to make the ideas and the thoughts more pure and to remove the faeces of what will keep us away from our mutual goal.

So, take your time when you find something of worth and expand on it.  Set it back out with your thoughts added.  You may allow one of us to be enlightened and increase the chance of getting through the pickle we are heading into.

Do not however, think that our ravings will effect the general population or bring them to an understanding that is well past the power of their shriveled and brains and souls to comprehend or even see.  We are writing for each other, the odd tribe of folks who know that the walls of Jericho are tumbling down.

We are writing for each other, true. The occasional lost soul might wander in every now and then, I've had two confirmed (via e-mail) "awakenings" in as many years. Maybe a few more unconfirmed. But by and large, most of my readers are "regulars". Not that that's a bad thing... But I like what you said about rubbing our ideas together to make a spark. Comments can be very helpful...

I am always hoping that we can get someone else on the bandwagon. But, I also buy lottery tickets.

Sometimes I think that the odds are the same.

Sigh.

great post.
I love the idea of refining our ideas. Almost like a distillery.
I've come to the conclusion that the future in terms of financial legerdemain and politics is unknowable, therefore the only thing we can count on is our relationships with real live human beings... so choose your friends and groups wisely.
