The Enemy Is Fear

I've learned something about life. Fear instills paranoia which leads to more fear which leads to greater paranoia which leads to greater fear which leads to even greater paranoia which leads to... you get the idea. When a person reaches the point where he or she cannot tell the difference between something monstrous and something perceived to be monstrous it's time to stop, look, and see that what you fear is not as threatening as you think.

The threat to America is gun violence- it is not Congress enacting effective gun laws. Stop the violence now.

Soul Truth

Sometimes I read something that speaks directly to my soul causing it to shudder a bit. This is because the words reveal a soul truth I did not realize I already intuitively understood until someone with greater insight than I wrote down what was in their own soul.

"The sister whose hand I am clutching in the picture is dead. I wonder every day whether she still exists. A person whom one has loved seems altogether too significant a thing to simple vanish altogether from the world. A person whom one loves IS the world, just as one knows oneself to be a world. How can worlds like these simple cease altogether? But if my sister does exist, then WHAT is she, and what makes that thing that she now is identical with the beautiful girl laughing at her little sister on that forgotten day?"
-Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, Betraying Spinoza,  quoted in The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century.
