Crop Circles in My Head

I am feeling a bit philosophical tonight, so you all have been warned. I have always thought myself to have a clue when it comes to life. The strange thing about that is.......the older I get the more I realize........there may be no clues, for me anyway. Just when I think I have it figured out............well........the rules change? Or maybe it is that I never understood the rules to start off.

For instance, you might fall in love with someone when you are young and think that this is it. You believe you will get married, have a family and live happily ever after. Then you start to hear about the statistics of young love and its success rate. It appears that the rules are changing. Then you get your heart broken and you think your life is over and once again it feels like the rules are changing. You meet other people, you date, you eventually find someone else you fall for. Then you begin to wonder which set of rules apply to this new relationship. Is this the happily ever after? Are you still too young? Is this the heartache express?

You see, it seems like this is the pattern of life to me. That there are sets of rules that I clearly do not understand. Health......Nutrition......Right......Wrong.......Republican......Democrat......
Life......Death........Love...... it is as if their definition changes daily. Then I wonder if it is just my own evolution that brings to a higher understanding of the things in my life. Or maybe these are all just pieces of a puzzle that I need to keep turning until I have them facing the right direction so that they will fit with the right place. Either way, I have a lot to learn.

If you haven't had enough deep thought I might suggest reading this. She is a dear friend of mine that has some real insight to life.

I try not to think too deeply. If I get through my days without my thoughts jumping track I consider it good.

I just have one answer....definitely Republican!!! Ha! I love you deep or shallow! Thanks for joining me on the journey we call life - as my BFF! You are my anchor.

I gave up thinking a long time ago.

I feel the same way, asking the same questions, thinking, like you, that maybe it's just me. After all, there is nothing new under the sun.

Way I look at it, life isn't a grand circle, but more of a spiral. Ever notice how we keep coming around to the same issues? Things we thought we'd battled and conquered years before? What the heck? I think those are our lifelong battles to fight, but that each time around we go deeper into what it says about us and who we are and what we still need to surrender, maybe.

Then, some days? It's just life's crap hitting the fan and not at all about us. :)

yeah this really sums it up. I have been thinking exactly the same thing lately. So much doubt so much clouding over truth it seems. We are waming up slowly like the frog
