Here's one to Ponder

I saw this quote recently on Facebook:

"What can we say about anything that wasn't regurgitated to us by someone else".

I have been mulling this quote over in my mind. Perhaps it's time to start seriously thinking about this. When we're talking about spirituality, religion, life in general, maybe we need to think for ourselves rather than repeating what we heard someone else say. Is that even possible? I guess I really never thought about it before. There had to be original thinking on someone's part at some time about everything I listed above. But, now that we're further on down the road. Is it possible? I've been on a journey for over ten years trying to decide what I really believe about the above subjects. Maybe I don't believe anything about any of them in particular. Maybe I just "think" certain ways when it comes to those subjects. Maybe belief is not the best way to describe it. I have changed what I "believe" myriads of times in the ten years. So, maybe there needs to be another way to describe it. I'll keep looking...............


  1. So good to see you back. I guess you could say I'm trying to make my own way through things spiritual. Some things others have "regurgitated" have resonated with me, some hasn't. We so often view the same thing, observe the same events, yet interpret them so differently according to our own ways of thinking. Rigid thinking no longer serves me well.

    1. Thanks Doug- I'm going to try to be around more. Long, dry spell!
