My First Post
Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
I have mused about starting a blog for many years, but the motivation to just start has never seemed to strike.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
So I’ll start with a dedication. I dedicate this blog to the Truth, whatever it may be, wherever the search leads me.
I seem, then, in just this little thing to be wiser than this man at any rate, that what I do not know I do not think I know either.
And because I know almost nothing, and I am wrong about almost everything I do know, I resolve to be charitable to the ideas of others, as I hope you will be to me.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
And because charity is especially difficult when our survival response is stimulated, I will be especially attentive to fearful symmetry. The Others have that all too human response too.
And yet it moves.
I will now proceed to go violate these ideals. I hope you will enjoy what you read, and perhaps gain a pinch of enlightenment along the way.
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
