Chaos…a brew for the bad absolutes of chains?

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”   Nietzsche

Ah, the existentialist and chaos seekers rent the fabric of absolutes to free themselves of restraints, of the confines of judgement, to absolve themselves for freedom, no the need, to explore the dark side, the far side, the unknown. And, when we all do it, the guiding stars become ever more illusory. Ultimately we witness the chaos that we are now conditioned to not judge. Improper to judge because by what tablet would you judge it?

Chaos and seeming freedom versus order, restrictions, and yes judgement. Seems to be a lot of judgement still going on even by those that decree there are no absolutes? Somewhere all this searching for answers, self awareness, clarity, harmony will not be found in the chaos of relativism. We must stop excusing, justifying, condoning chaos when we see it.

Promoters of chaos maybe seek absolutes far more confining than those we ran from in our youth. Seek the stars, deny the chaos of agitators and the elixir of statism. Simply said, kindly meant. Ah, there I go again.

Taking a bite out of nature…….

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”

John Muir, The Mountains of California

alone…privacy…slow down…reflect…own it

“Everything that matters in our intellectual and moral life begins with an individual confronting his own mind and conscience in a room by himself.” Arthur Schlesinger Jr.

Beneath the Confusion is Clarity………

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”   Melody Beattie

Holding Back…..

“You will never find the real truth among people that are insecure or have egos to protect. Truth over time becomes either guarded or twisted as their perspective changes; it changes with the seasons of their shame, love, hope or pride.” Shannon Adler

Converge…Come Together…Focus

“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”    Henri Cartier-Bresson
