writing has always been my outlet. so naturally, I tend to write more whenever I’m grappling with something that calls for a shift in awareness. it is my way of processing, organizing, controlling the way I think about a thing.
and since my outlook these days has been pretty grim given the pain and confusion I’m trying to sort through so that I might begin to make some sense of it, some of my blogs have been concerning to friends and perhaps misconstrued by others. I’ve exposed a lot of myself on here; offered a window into my soul. it ain’t always pretty. I’ll be the first to admit that. but I think, I would rather be able to name my demons than pretend they don’t exist.
to go along with Buddha’s insight into what he described as the Eight Worldly Concerns, we need to embrace that there is both good and bad, light and dark within each of us. and so I’ve decided that while I may need to get dark and heavy because yes, those parts do exist within me, I will write to inspire the light within us all. but above all, I will write.
