Yes, yes, yes!
I believe we all walk our paths in life but none of us are above needing a helping hand in our travels.
As I have read comments, the trail of insightful “crumbs” so many of you leave for me on this blog, I am at once touched and humbled.
And I wonder, how is it you see me so well through a few paragraphs? How did you get so smart?
And I wonder further, as we have discussed that writing is so helpful to healing the mind and helping one gain new insights and awarenesses, that if the solitude and concentration required to read someone’s blog does not lead to the same leaps in awareness and integration. And in doing so, makes us all a bit “smarter”.
For so many of the comments I have received demonstrate a level and depth of understanding about me and some situational dynamics in my life that I would argue those I see in my personal life on a regular basis would struggle to attain.
Is it something about having to actually read the words that we finally understand another? Is there something about not sitting across someone, thinking of one’s return comment, that allows everything to be heard?
Does the act of reading and interpreting bind our brains in a different way than simply speaking? And in this binding of the brain, do new connections form and our ability to assess and interpret grow with it?
Writing, reading, listening, interpreting, assessing, understanding our own lives and the lives of others. Words spiraling on the page-given and received.
And in the spiraling revolution, I truly believe we do become a bit smarter along the way.
