If you only knew…

The sun sets on another day…

Sunset is coming, and I am writing this before it comes, yes, I am strange.

I was thinking today a great deal about all the assumptions we make in life. It’s hard to get that across to people and even harder to explain to people their assumptions are often baseless and instead create situations where we suffer more than we solve. Assumptions without reason can even be quite embarrassing.

Maybe we need to stick to exactly what we know. Maybe we need to pay attention instead of chattering on when we shouldn’t. After all shouldn’t we all really want to know more about each other? I find myself asking that question a lot. I find myself wanting to know more about others then to hear the sound of my own voice.

If you only knew the people of the world and listen to them perhaps you would learn. If you only knew how to listen instead of talk perhaps you would know. If you only knew yourself as well as you think you do perhaps you would be enlightened.

So as the sunsets on another day maybe it’s time to listen. Maybe it’s time to pay attention to more than just the meanderings in our own minds and instead try to understand others. Maybe it’s time to let go of anger and other emotions that are negative and focus on the positive. Try to listen and understand, no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and listen…
