You gotta love philosophy – full of questions, wonder and oh, so many words!! My old friend Marlee called me early this morning- time for a catch-up. On our respective phones in front of our respective monitors, we visited the Homestead Website and poked through some old blog posts. From there to the business of daily life – what’s new with each of us since we were together last to celebrate birthdays, which led to how school is going, which led to words and studies we’ve done together in the past. And that is how I arrived at this title. Worldviews, yep, that’s what I’m studying now and how fun it is!!
Ever thought about it? Summer’s good for that – reflection – and that’s where I am today, reflecting on worldviews, how they’re formed, what they mean, who cares, anyway? I do, thank you very much. It was Socrates who said, “an unexamined life is not worth living,” Interesting that he said that while on trial for his very life, for being a philosopher. The first paper in this philosophy class was did I or did I not agree with the statement and why.
I did, wrote the paper, got max points – I so love to write. So it’s summer, time for reflection and trying to catch up on reading. In the theme of worldviews, an old favorite read is Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and I pulled it off the shelf again – old books are like old friends. So ponder a bit on your worldview – perhaps examine your life on this journey to wellness and wholeness and no surprise to regular readers, my worldview is definitely Christian and my belief is that it’s the way to wholeness and wellness.
Agree or disagree, I’d be interested in feedback – food for thought and reflection. Thanks for visiting…
