Session Whatever Last Week Was Plus One

No details on my session this week as this one was just for me.  Thera is amazing at asking the right question at the right time and bring back up previous points at the right time.   I enjoy the sessions thoroughly and feel I am better than I ever was thanks to her.  I want to talk today instead about a friend of mine who is going through a similar journey, only without the cancer.  

My friends, whom I will not name due to my policy on other people's lives, noticed an inner peace within me and remembered some things I said to him about removing negative music and movies from my life and he decided to begin his own journey.   Now I should pause for a brief moment to explain something about this friend: he is wise beyond his years, but just wise enough to get himself into trouble.   He is a man who knows far more than he realizes and from whom I learn quite a bit.

He and I talk life a lot and he is a confidant of mine.   My nihilism is not accepted by him, nor is anyone else's ideas of fate or destiny.   He believes life is what you put out there and most of us put out negativity, so that is what life shows us in return.   He agrees with my statement that life is inherently without meaning, but disagrees life is meaningless.   He believes in the reflective nature of reality and that what we put in ourselves is what we use for our lives and how we live our lives determines what we put in ourselves.   To use another cliche' (the sign of a tired writer): he believes life is simply an empty glass and we choose what we fill it with.   Most people choose piss and vinegar when they should focus on using only the most pure nectar of life they can find.

I think he may be on to something.

Couldn't agree more . . . That's a good friend. Peace said...

If I might add a footnote . . . In the Age of Nihilism Piss/Vinegar is the Sweet Nectar. Old Chineese Proverb: "Beware of those who try to piss in your glass!".
