Insight?

Have always wondered/felt it wrong to think about how one feels. Protestant self-denial? I was always told it was unhealthy to look too deeply inside myself, but surely the point of life is to participate in the world, to live as a good animal. I have always thought that God needs us to make His vision manifest – though He must be disappointed with what we have made of it. How can we do that without using our senses and interpreting our experiences through our deepest selves? We may see the world wrong, but we are all we have to look through.

About UntraveledRoads

Fascinated by life, looking for answers to chronic pain and finding unexpected gifts. Interested in people, ideas, healing and humour. I am very happily married with three children and a kitten. As English born immigrants to Canada, we have family spread overseas, a daughter in South Africa and one in England. We also run a charity in South Africa to educate black, rural South African Women. Our first girl from a rural township has just graduated as an accountant from Johannesburg University and got a good job in a bank.
