What Might Happen Philosophy ~ Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
This is a topic into which one could drill down for ages. The journey, however, calls me in another direction. What might happen does bear visiting from time to time. We are too steeped in the philosophy of fear and a hedge mentality. We are in danger of becoming so walled in by our what might happen thinking that we cannot see the value in our differences.
The idea that we can prevent wrong and harm by building hedges and walls is an exercise in self-delusion. We can only find peace and quality of life in loving others without condition or exception. We can only build a quality society if we treat everyone without fear.
Yes, terrible things might happen. There are people who wish to do evil and visit harm on others. We cannot stop them with hedges. We cannot legislate them out of existence. The world will not become better through division and segregation. I do not have to agree with everyone to find the beauty and value in every soul.
I must not build hedges and I must find my way through those constructed by others. I can crush any barrier with love and kindness. I am required to love others and it is my privilege to do so. When I invest my energy in that goal I find that my own hedges are trimmed and I can more readily see my way past the hedges of others.
Many bad things might and will happen. Fear of that is not what works. Fear of what might happen must not immobilize us into neglecting the needs of others. It must not keep us from being good to each other. Your company Dear Reader is always a part of the joy in my journey home. Perhaps together we can turn our hedges into topiary that invites others to see who we are and understand our unique artistry.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
