To better understand the foundational meaning of this blog, I’d like to share a quote “Absolem” of Alice in Wonderland shared:
“We’re all vulnerable. Mix the wrong feelings
with the right kind of bad along with
the wrong kind of good,
and you’ll wind up with a total breakdown.”
The naked truth of the quote above reflects on how destructive recent events can harm each and every one of us. And, well, the entire planet. Some recent destructive events seem to be trying to teach us how to hurt and heal precisely at the same time. The unusual, the unknown, and all the crazy stuff in the media constantly overpower and grab our attention. It seems we somehow now have a strangely diabolical standard of everyday living.
Our ability to think “out-of-the-box” is a powerful form of transformation and healing. That ability also has been a significant change-maker for humanity because it is refreshingly real and inspiring. Maybe that’s what surviving life is all about – buffering life’s moments-to-moments and gleefully dancing around all the changes. All our sudden life changes, in the long run, help us learn how to be flexible and aware.
Most of the posts you’ll read on this website come from the various mysterious musings that roll around in my head. It’s a little bit about seeing and eventually understanding all the naturally occurring dichotomies of life. Those dichotomies, as entertaining as they are, can round out some very bizarre situations that make our lives weird, annoying, and strangely enjoyable at the same time. We must flow with the flow because to fight the fight for change can become impossible and worthless.
I believe at this point, Absolem would ask – “are you ready to become sitting with the strangeness of your life?”
Think about what your answer would be. Until then, my dear reader, I leave you with a quote from The Mad Hatter himself:
There is a place, like no place on earth, where the land is full of wonder, mystery, and danger.
Some say, to survive it, you need to be as mad as a hatter.
Which, luckily, I am.
