In light of endings and new beginnings regarding election, all I can muster is learning how to listen better, empathize. Historian and social philosopher Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy claiming that ‘the greatest temptation of our time is impatience, in its full original meaning: refusal to wait, undergo, suffer. We seem unwilling to pay the price of living with our fellows in creative and profound relationships.’
Regardless of belief, love runs faster than fear. It always applies and doesn’t rush past hard places. Love enables us to listen when we feel inclined to react. Love moves us to seek to understand, rather to be understood. The coexistence of suffering and intense joy at the same time to endure.
Freedom. ‘merica y'all ✌🏽️
