There comes a time in every soul's life when the self begs the question... "What I ought... or what I AM?."
Those are the words I wrote on January 17, 2017... I wrote those words then stopped writing... until today.
It seems the answer to that question was too heavy for me at the top of this year. I am not so sure that it is any less difficult now or if I am just up for the challenge of seeing what the answer might be... or maybe it is in pondering the question that I can figure out the oughts and AMs of my life. Are there overlaps? Things that I ought to do that are also part of who I AM? I hope I am not getting too deep...
... for you. It's just that this question has plagued my life since I can remember. Do I do what I ought to do (what the world thinks I should do) or do I do things in line with who I AM? Do I follow the path of that which seems to make the most sense or do I follow the path that resonates with my spirit? I could ask these questions all day and night for eons. What is most important?... How do I know if I am on the right path... the right path for me.
You might start to give me the pep talk in your head. You know, the one that I would give you if I were reading your blog,
...and as I would listen... I would wonder how you traversed your own interaction with this question... have you asked it of yourself? What was your response? I would love to hear from you.
Until next sitting,
