I beg your pardon…

Being alone is a treasure because I find compassion, patience and simplicity.

Yielding to a discovery process I uncover much and learn even more about my interests and pursuits.

Yet, unless society receives a return for itself, this endeavor ma appear fruitless and a waste of time, energy and resources.

Yet, it is fascinating to look at the creative mind.

The closer solitude is examined the muddier the water appears to be.

For example, not all mothers are blamed when their child does not form an attachment.

In some cases it is considered a disease like Autism.

In many instances of solitude the artiest, or creative person will seek out solitude to find authenticity.

Again, this is difficult for society, even the immediate family and friends who may find the creative person aloof or preoccupied with their work and less with their relationship to others.

But it is easy to recognize the outcomes as valuable:  creativity, authenticity, truth, science, art, philosophy, etc.

Living a life of immersion

Standing with those who hate you,

Standing for those who can’t,

Standing in harmony with all,

Standing with the help and grace of those who want to make a difference,

What do you say, Are you ready to leave this popsicle stand?

Some say, that when the pain becomes unbearable it is ethical to leave this world.

I prefer to take my time and only leave as a last resort.

The question is more about preparation than an excuse to leave without reason.

The Philosophy Of Being An Extrovert Or An Introvert

Just like there are very few absolutes or answers in life,

It all helps to know who you are,

The crowd energizes me-extrovert.

Or not, introvert.

I like competitive sports like hockey, there is a rush getting out on the ice with all the players-extrovert.

I like to read and have deep thoughts, maybe a conversation about the idea with a like minded person-introvert.

Philosophically it is important to get to know yourself and have a good teacher to show you the ropes of your extroversion or introversion.

Ideally you need to process your desires and aversion to learn how to conduct yourself like everybody else.

In western society we tend to reward extrovert and punish introverts.

But people are who they are,

Like a gay is a gay or a straight is a straight and everyone in between!

Society is becoming more tolerant of differences,

But in the interim, be yourself and learn the difference.
