Entry: "Idling mind..."

I remember when I was young I used to worry about the wildest things...When I was around 6 or 7, I used to worry that the earth was going to stop spinning around and we all would freeze up or burn up depending on which side of the planet we were on...yeah, I was the young scientist back then. I used to wonder where wind was coming from and whether or not it would stop blowing for good...Often I would squint at the sun and wonder what would happen if it winked out...Most of all that worry was long since forgotten as I matured into the older gentleman that I am now (wink).....until recently when we went through a series of particularly severe "solar flare eruptions" that were not in the normal swing of things as far as the sun is concerned...Kind of left me idly wondering again about it all...Do you ever find yourself thinking "deep" stuff like that? Not all the time, mind you, but every now and then letting go with some serious mindflow? Do you take it for granted that the earth will keep on spinning around forever and ever? Or that the sun will burn day in and day out like clockwork, just because thats the way things are? Or are you of the "what the heck do I care about that for?" persuasion and have never given a red hoot to stuff like that?

I believe that "Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance" (Confucius)...

i think people seek the end so often... the answer... that they miss the journey... the lesson...

i find myself OVERTHINKING and OVERANALYSING a lot of things. since i've gotten older and deeper in Christ, i've let a lot of stuff just be as it is.

now i say, "it's a PURPOSE and a PLAN"..... that helps me 2 just let things FLOW! :hehe:

I tend to be an analytical thinker. It has its benefits, but more often than not, I will try to balance things out by going with the flow in order to keep things fun and interesting.
