“Every person takes the limits of their own field of vision for the limits of the world.”
No two people look at the world the same way, because no two people can. It makes each conscious experience unique and I believe it is what makes all of this so special. The gift of isolated experience is a source of great richness for me. It allows me to be patient with others as well as myself.
Rituals can also increase the richness of life. Today happens to be Easter. Large swaths of the globe are hunting for hidden eggs, sharing baskets of candy, and celebrating a significant moment for their religion. Personally, I find any excuse to celebrate acceptable. I come from a family that celebrates Easter and I have countless fantastic memories of the day.
Ramadan is currently being observed by many. I met a new friend recently who is currently observing the tradition of fasting during daylight hours. I learned it is an expression of empathy towards those with little or going without. It is an act of discipline, and acts of discipline build character.
I am making efforts to not only expand my scope of reality but to approach all situations acknowledging the extreme limitations of my awareness.
Lemme try to explain this situation above. At the graffiti park today there was a marching band of sorts. I showed up just as they stopped playing but the crowd cheered with great enthusiasm. On the left side there are a few people on stilts. Yes, you read that right. Nobody was paying much mind to them, but the stilts were all light up and wild-looking, and they were on beach sand. I found it deliciously odd and very impressive.
Springtime is celebrated in many ways around the world but the general theme is based on the symbolism of the planting season. Fertility and hopes of abundance. I wish this for all of you.
