I wouldn't have written what I'm about to. My philosophy is to give as much as I can, as honestly as I can, and as consistent as I can to those I encounter, accept, love, and cherish. No natter the level of permanency. I've come to see how important the mysteriousness of this life is, in some ways a kind of mysteriousness that parallels death itself. Knowing is having the courage to let go to the mystery and being completely vulnerable to its transformative potency.
Believing this has made the idea of my life becoming something else more complicated, less mysterious, and I guess, natural.
while I don't see as much mystery as you do, I love your way of looking at life. Thats a wonderful post, and a respectable path to walk.
Funny, many people would read that and think you expect complete selflessness, but I don't think you do. I'm sure you, like myself, just think that being kind, and available to people who need you when you can do it, is a better way to live life than to be close and selfish.
