Reflection for the Week- March 23rd, 2015

Our question marks ??? in life will probably never entirely disappear. The persistent battles within ourselves about what is “real” are unlikely to diminish. Don’t worry. That’s ok. There is bound to be “more” to our stories and experiences than a concept of “proof” can bear. Demanding either a “yes” or a “no,” a complete resolution, tends to lead us astray from the crucial reality of trust. But, of course, what and who to trust has to have some criteria – lines of appeal – to merit our trust, otherwise it would be downright foolishness. None of us should buy into folly, yet we do want to admit that life is complex and therefore escapes our being able to put it into a neat and tidy little box that we slip into our pockets and call a done deal.
