The Mind

From African Rhapsody by X-ray-Robinson (author's profile)



Finally, brothers,
whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely,
whatever things are of good report,
if there be any virtue
and if there is anything praiseworthy
meditate on these things.

(Philippians 4:8)

Ill definitely second that because those are the most important attributes in this world at such a bad time for so many people. To ignore and not show appreciation for those rare but still hanging around GOOD THINGS that are still here around us, all we must do is search and find that they were there all along- overlooked in a negative haze that we experience as human beings from time to time, and as you said meditate on them just as the verse you so well quoted, otherwise Im afraid the goodness left in this entire existence will leave us forgotten as we have forgotten it and failed to appreciate its availability should we just look for the good things in the world, because they are there. Even if some of us have to look deeper than others, anyone can find them when they are most needed and even when least expected- almost as they come as a gift from somewhere higher above than here, somewhere much more special, where everything makes sense and there are no unanswered questions that eat our hearts alive throughout our lifetimes, etc. Anything praiseworthy and of virtue SHOULD be meditated on, otherwise it will not think we desire nor need it any longer in our "lives" and that we have finally became totally uncaring and no longer needing of good things surrounding us. Me, I crave those things around me as a way to feel calm/peace/safety and no anxiety in such shaky times. Thanks again for such a thought provoking blog that says so much with just a statement to ponder, which I found very appropriate for the lives most of us lead in this world when we let the good parts or ourselves go down the drain and far away. You speak volumes without barely speaking, and that is special. -Thanks So Much for your Inspiration and Encouragement that I have received from your blogs, Xray, because they mean tons to me and others too, Much Luv, C.C.

Hi XRay, thank you for the support and replies, they are truly helpful. I wanted you to know that since my last comment to you I have good news. I also want you to know you were very correct. Once things started to fall into place, as you warned, many people would fall out of my life which they did but now that I see with much clearer eyes it was for the best honestly. I have noticed that lately everything seems to be much more in order, and things that used to be too much to handle suddenly seem so easily understood you assume you were given a new brain. Haha. It is that much of a difference though at times! (smile) Thank you so much for advice! -C.C.
