Words of Wisdom

“The world is not what I think, but what I live through.”
– Maurice Merleau-Ponty

This explains perfectly why people live in little worlds created by themselves. We think, make choices, and live the effects of those choices. Often we don’t even acknowledge that there is life beyond our living. It’s like the world begins and ends with us and our little circle of influence. My continuous goal is to expand my circle and invite myself into the world that is larger than I can comprehend. It’s scary sometimes- and sometimes I wish I could forget a little something that I’ve let into my world. Overall though, I think it’s a good thing. I think.

My brain isn’t really working today, so where does that leave my little world?
