I,…. how many thoughts, sentences, motivations, activities in a life, in my life, are centered on or somehow motivated from the me platform? In my last post here, I alluded to the fact that my struggle with awesome in the context of I/me, that Jon Acuff’s book “Start” seemed to be coming from, left me feeling conflicted. It still does, however as I continue to read the book I like it more and more because he does eventually unpack the “awesome” platform to reveal a more selfless enterprise.
In my own musings I may have found a place to be Awesome, I think awesome would be awesome, if awesome was where I/me was so focused on you/ they/ them, that there was no room left to realize that, that focus let awesome be without an intention on me… I think.
Still the question comes to mind, and I hate to beat a dead horse here, or anywhere for that matter, is it possible to have that kind of focus? I know we can have all kinds of situations where we are so intent on the moment that there is no conscious thought of “Me” , in our subconscious however, can we ever truly escape into selflessness?
Happy Saturday Folks!
