Finding My Way

These past few weeks have brought me   face-to-face with some of the most challenging moments of my life. Facing life squarely is always a challenge one way or another, but confronting the consequences of my brother’s illness took me to levels of challenge I never imagined.  Forced to consider and respond to circumstances beyond anything previously encountered, I found myself floating up to my chin in the uncharted waters of new experience.

There have been moments so strange and awful that I doubted my capacity to endure them, and others of such profound beauty and deep emotion that it seemed I might be equally undone as they unfolded.  As I attempt to adjust now to the aftermath of the extremities in both directions, I find myself disoriented to the point where all my words seem to fall far short of the mark.

I know I must attempt to sort out the particulars eventually, and I feel strongly that there are probably a few gems among what feels like a great weight of stones in all of this, but at present, all I can ask for is your patience while I look through them. 

…more to come….

About jjhiii24
Way back in 1973, as a young man embarking on the journey of a lifetime, I experienced what Carl Jung described as “the eruption of unconscious contents,” which compelled me to seek the path I continue to pursue to this day. The path of discovery has led me through an astonishingly diverse range of explorations in philosophy, science, and religion, as well as the many compelling ideas in the literature and scriptures of the cultures of the world. There is, in my view, a compelling thread made up of components of each, that runs through the fabric of life. The nature and study of human consciousness has been a compelling subject for me for more than twenty years. I have spent a great deal of my time and energies trying to come to terms with my own very particular “inner experience” of life, and to somehow understand how the events and flow of my temporal life have directly been influenced by the workings within. Sharing what I have come to understand about my own “Inner Evolution,” has tasked my intellect and communications skills in a big way. I am only just beginning to feel confident enough in the results of my study and contemplation to express the many various aspects of what I have uncovered within myself. I am hopeful that my own subjective and personal experience of my own “human spirit” will resonate with others, and encourage them to explore their own.
