As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect. The truth is - I was reminded of a time when I entered the Vice - Principals office, probably about six years. I was there as a parent advocating for one of my children. The purpose of this writing is not to get into the details, but rather the questions that I was left to ponder upon. A bit frustrated, I thought why does it have to be this way? Or if we don't try a different way, or find solutions, we will always get the same results.
In any given situation such as a discussion there will be the exchange of the conversation, sometimes there will be misunderstandings, sometimes understandings, we will make meanings through our prior experiences, thoughts etc. Sometimes we will be afraid to try new things, ways of thinking because we fear the unknown . To exemplify my thoughts I will present the following thought and exercise:
What else is a thought form but an art form,
Let us begin by taking a look at the following image:
When I look at this piece of art work, my answers and meanings will differ from another persons answers or meanings. We will each construe our meanings differently, because we see things as we are. It takes a wider understanding to put ourselves in the place of another to understand how they are making meaning.
When we look at a piece of art work, we are not really looking at the piece as a whole, we look at the different areas, sections to derive the meaning of the whole.
These thoughts can also be connected to the idea of thought form. A thought itself is just a thought, just like a painting hanging on a wall. It hangs and waits for the human interaction, to bring it to life. Just like a thought form, as these thoughts are written, they simply sit and wait for the a reader, as the work of art. They are not there to force a thought, or force an action, the thoughts are simply presenting as a suggestive, an invitation, asking, inviting, maybe a poke, maybe a prod, a warmth, a smile, or an invocation, allowing us to expand our own thinking, our heart.
This is how we learn and grow, to continuously think and push forth a thought. To question the self and the others. If we don't engage in this type of inquiry then everything will remain flat, the same. Just like how I walked into the Vice - Principals office, leaving hopeless and frustrated.
We must continue to question, if we don't question then the purpose of the question defeats its purpose.
An invitation to question, my thoughts with love and kindness.
