People need content. They need something to think about.
Less than a week ago I had decided to stop blogging for an unknown period of time. The things that I was allowing into my life, via posts I had been reading, were causing me to get very irritated. During my temporary hiatus, I have noticed that more people are actually following my blog. Well, they need something to read, so I’m going to keep writing.
What I won’t be doing anymore is reading those posts that caused me to become frustrated. I brought the unwanted uneasiness upon myself. Duh!
That’s what we do. We flood our minds with things. Unfortunately, many times those things are the wrong things.
I suppose my journey with Jesus is unique, as is everyone’s. Being the critical thinker that I am–always demanding the truth–I analyze the shit out of everything. And, unfortunately, everyone. There are two key problems that I notice within myself while facing this personal dilemma. One, I cannot figure the Jesus thing out (His Word: the Bible). There are too many missing pieces and nothing is for certain, I have found. There are too many dichotomies and contradictions. The only thing that I can gather is that all of existence came from a source and this Jesus dude came to help us understand it. The puzzle is incomplete, and not knowing the rest (while being sick of seeing others claim they know for certain these missing pieces of the puzzle) makes me uncomfortable. Which brings me to the second part of my dilemma. People, namely most Christians, are so full of themselves because they claim to have the definitive answers to the puzzle. It hurts me to see people living in la la land.
Enough about all of that.
We are free to focus upon whatever we want in this life. So, I suppose I’ll keep walking down the road to see what I encounter, straying away from the weirdos. I’ll try to bring the readers something to think about that doesn’t stem from my focus upon the wrong things.
I’ll try, anyway.
