Perception In Flux

People are, by our very nature, covetous creatures. The problem with coveting is not the desire or the possession. there is nothing wrong with wanting things and not everything that we desire is bad or wrong. It is our reason for doing so that causes trouble.

It is good to seek knowledge and understanding. We all have questions; however, all too often we cling to the truths we find. We give our knowledge a weight it does not deserve. We hinge our self-esteem, our purpose, our very reason for being on what we know. And because we have placed so much of our identity and life on a few truths we have discovered, we cannot afford to have that changed or erased. We will refuse to consider that are other truths, other perspectives, other possibilities. The truth, then, becomes a prison in which we hold ourselves captive.

We must recognize that in the vastness of the universe, whatever fraction of knowledge we possess is both infantile and incomplete. If the truth is what we seek, it must begin with humility and an acceptance of our limitations. We must learn not to hold onto what we know today, realizing that what we know tomorrow may change everything. We must understand that throughout or lives everything we learn we will have to learn again.

Violet Ambitions are constantly in flux.
