ON IRRECONCILEABLE DIFFERENCES

side by each

We are into the 21st day of Lent.  So far, so good.  I am still tranquil, peaceful and almost Buddha-like.  I am mixing my religion here.  And does it matter, the name we give to God, this spirit inside each of us.  Is a rose not a rose, by any other name?

There are so many things to think upon….so many sides to everything.  It is best not to dig too much or to dwell too much.  That is the course I have chosen for at least these days of Lent….just to feel what peace is like.  Maybe it is THE path to open-mindedness, an open heart, and forgiveness.

It is one thing for Dr. Phil to ask:  Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?  I am stubborn.  I have a stiff neck as the Chinese would say.  I do not like to give in, to concede.  I want to be right.  My neck is very stiff.  Sometimes I feel like I’m choking with my righteousness.

I have to start where I am now, in these days of Lent.  I am accepting myself as I am…flawed, imperfect, human.  I forgive myself for being all that I am and will move forward one step at a time.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
