QUOTE: BELIEVE those who are seeking the truth!
Doubt those who find it!
Years ago a local church had a slogan with stickers for cars in the congregation,
I FOUND IT!! My response at the time was, IF YOU THINK YOU’VE FOUND IT, YOU HAVEN’T!!
Recently I completed a project that I’ve been working on for over 40 years! I even made the comments to the effect, “I finally found the last piece of the puzzle. It all fits perfectly!”‘
And then today I read the quote of the day stated above!!!! If you use the saying, I Found IT, you are closing your mind to any additional information available or any that could become available in the future. So when you say I FOUND IT!
YOU HAVEN’T!!!!! 🙂 Think about it!
….and think about “it” I have, sir. What you describe could be another example of Fixed vs Growth Mindset. Growth mindsets always keep their mind open to additional facts, learning, experiences – knowing that they are only as close to whatever their “it” is as yesterday’s intake of knowledge or experiences. Or sometimes good old confirmation bias kicks in? No matter the path, we’re always learning aren’t we? Maybe our “it” is, and will be,an eternal search for truth, love, or purpose. Makes the sojourn that much more interesting.
This is why I look forward to your Blogs!!! You make me think outside the box and I thank you for that!! You also put things in such a way that makes sense. I do, however, sometimes have to read it several or many times to finally GET IT, but once I do, I understand and will do my best to use it in my life and in sharing with others. Like in Forgiving and Letting it Go! That took a while but now seems like second nature and if I forget, you are sitting on my shoulder reminding me. There have been things in my past that were eating me up and now I am at Peace. Thank you for taking out time in your day to do these. You are appreciated and loved!!! See you on Thursday. Huggies!!!
