"I am a watcher
I came as a visitor and
I am still watching my mind now"
. . . Zim Ngqawana
I think that I am entering a new phase in my life. I sense within me a shift of priorities.
I am certainly entering a new phase in my life, spiritually speaking, where I sense the need to always weigh personal ambitions against the welfare of those around me.
The quest for a personal, practical and fine balance between the intellect and intuition all of a sudden seems like a wholesome pursuit worthy of a life-long commitment.
There was a time in my life, when I was hard-hearted, uncaring and ungrateful.
Today. I see myself differently. I am learning to bring a sense of balance in my life. I am learning to prioritize and live by a value system based primarily on elevating the concerns and needs of those around me, my loved ones, above my own.
Selflessness, empathy and the desire to treat others with honour have always been part of my life, but now it seems to me that I am awakening to a much higher level of relationship with others.
I am asking myself whether I have been missing the human experience all along?
I am wondering if I am, perhaps, stepping into sentimentality? I am really not sure.
These are some of the issues gripping my mind as I begin the first week of June.
I have got to go. Bye.
