I was recently shaken by some tragic news. And while not all that familiar with the facts leading to this tragic event, I couldn't help but think of how many of us are battling silent demons each day. Sometimes these battles are so troubling that it becomes so difficult to look inside that we are tempted to keep ourselves busy with a host of activities.We focus on achieving in the physical world perhaps in an attempt to avoid dealing with the demons that haunt us from the inside. The more afraid we become of who we may be, we create walls and an illusion of who we think we are.
At the same time were are bumping up against a society who has been trained to make judgments. Many times these judgments are made with incomplete information. We are sometimes inclined to make judgements of others in our attempt not to look at ourselves and what we are capable of being or doing.
So what does all this mean? I am not really sure, but I think it is to encourage me, and all of us for that matter, to fully feel the range of emotions associated with the trials and tribulations of daily life.
