“That luminous part of you
that exists beyond personality – your soul,
if you will – is as bright and shining
as any that has ever been . . .
Clear away everything that keeps you separate
from this secret luminous place. Believe it exists,
come to know it better, nurture it,
share its fruits tirelessly.”

Don’t be afraid to be confused. Try to remain permanently confused.

[The following reflection is mine only and should not be associated with the author the quote above comes from.]

Are we all aware of the unwritten demands on us on a daily basis at all the possible levels a human being is known to exist in? Let me clarify the demands I am thinking about: Having to strip off of our personal needs, concerns and work-and family-related responsibilities -to the best that we can- in order to actively contribute to the well-being of other world-occupants. As a caring member of the largest society of all times we call “humanity”, I am utterly confused about how to balance those infamously insufficient 24 hours to honor also those commands. But, I know that I will always be happy to be confused about such surface dilemma. As for my own expectations from my self to make at least a slight difference for the good of humanity, I doubt that confusion will ever settle in with me.
