Real Freedom Comes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Real freedom comes
from acceptance. Only when you embrace
pain, sorrow, and confusion as
part of the human experience
can you find ease
and stillness.
Cory Muscara

Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible. Frank Zappa

People should eat and drink
and enjoy the fruits of their labor,
for these are gifts from God.
Ecclesiastes 3:13

Someone in your life at some time will believe
something that you know is factually untrue.
It is fruitless to argue about facts
beyond a certain point. What is helpful
is to realize that the relationship, the other person,
is more important than facts. This untruth is
Emotionally True to the them. How is
their passion & belief system wrapped up in it?
Lots of information there about your friend
that is much more important and
interesting than facts.
Encyclopedias are full of those.

Pixie is there passionately believing that it is time to give her a queen's tribute in catnip. You can't argue with her about it, just value her passion and give.her.the.nip!

Wonderful pictures and words. The beach is lovely the ants are busy. My favorite is Pixie, of course. Fab words about not having to be right and the relationship is more important. Beautiful post as always! Happy T-day and hugz

You quoted "This untruth is Emotionally True to the them. How is their passion & belief system wrapped up in it?"

This used to be reasonable to believe, but these days, the persistence of lies is a political matter and probably speaks to a very different mindset. So sad that our society had been corrupted as it has.

Such thought provoking quotes in this post, Cloudia. Pixie and I both know people who are emotionally invested in an untruth. However, I MUST overlook that untruth in order to keep my friend(s). This is a very truthful statement.

LOVED the pensive Coca Cola shot. That was super and perfect for T this Tuesday, too, dear.
