As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace,e and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The truth is that this summer has been one of self-reflection, contemplation, and even taking the time to face tough issues, that one decides to put off because of the busyness of life, or because the issues are tough and we decide we need to focus our attention, to remain in a focused state. So of course as many of our readers will know, I graduated from the Masters of Education program. This graduation and the ending of courses mean't that thinking space and time was freed up from academic life. But this space brought me to spaces that were difficult, topics that I had to put off to the side, once again cropped up. Not in the sense of a physical manifestation, but within my thought life. The inner questions, and reasoning led me to the idea of life stages, life-rebuilding, where I thought that life is more than the traditional stages that we think about, such as; childhood, adolescents, adulthood, and so on. There are stages within stages, where within occurs rebuilding, or the manifestations of life through thought and actions continue to occur.
The stages within the stages also require our attention, even if they are difficult for thought, the thoughts need to be resolved. Resolving thoughts allow us to move through, in a sense obtain a sense of accomplishment, to re-build, manifest the stages within the stages. Our books, our learning, our goals for the very purpose of life should not be so heavily weighted that we simply forget the human essence. Who we are, what we went through, and what we hope for. Even though I'm grateful for my time of graduation, I realized how difficult it is to face and confront the issues that we put off, and for me this has been a new life learning experience.
