Please note: I am not pontificating. I have long since outgrown the arrogant belief that I could lead others to light. We can only lead our selves thither, and must chose our own path.
I realize that, now.
But I can shine a light ~ or what I imagine to be a light ~ in the hope that it will light the way.
I tend to be especially philosophical on Sundays. So here it is:
How we feel about ourselves dominates our happiness ~ or lack of it ~ every hour of every day.
If we focus only on pleasure, self contempt unconsciously shadows every moment of every day.
But if we relentlessly treat others kindly, self love lightens every moment of every day.
How we feel about ourselves dominates every hour of every day.
