Perhaps for the world.

Why is it the simple ones that really make me think.

And I did like the one above on thinking....which is something I indulge in too often. ;-)

Egal Bohen said...

Tanks Mel..

I agree

"for the world"... "on the world"
"for others", perhaps even in the long run "for ourselves"...we just have to use it don't we

BTW I'm still "here" thinking about over "there" when I'm not thinking about here!

Mel said...

LOL

Just goes to show ya that thinking isn't an all bad thing.

Though.....moderation would be good.
I can think myself into analysis paralysis.

Here's good, there's good--it's all good!

Egal Bohen said...

Mel,

Bring it on!

Analysis -v- Paralysis

No contest!

(You see... I am well and truly afflicted with this incurable
desire for understanding!)

Egal..

Mel said...

Ah but I can 'think' my way into so much and 'do' so little.

That's the analysis paralysis which I try to avoid.
Understanding isn't 'enough'.
What I do with the understanding makes for the whole experience, otherwise it's only 'thinking' and not 'experiencing'.

I've been known to go to extremes to avoid a new experience.
Some moments I STILL prefer being 'right' MORE than I prefer a different experience.
Silly ME!
Oh how we can all cheat ourselves, eh?

All sehr interesting!!...

Doing can lead to understanding visout any thinking....m'mm

but zen........

Thinking can lead to understanding visout any doing...m'mm

Zo Vot does understanding lead to?

m'mm...probably being certified insane!

Mel said...

*shrugs*

My best 'understanding' will alter once I experience and don't just 'think'.

And believe it or not....my 'understanding' MOSTLY leaves me with a sense of peace.
Even if my 'understanding' is "You don't get to 'understand'...you get to accept."

*chuckling*
Now run THAT in the circle we've created! LOL

I, like the view said...

sometimes I think that would be a reasonable end result (being certified)

(not you, me I mean)

Egal Bohen said...

When you don't know what to do understanding doesn't come into it anyway - it's down to following your instincts

So Mel is it now

understanding versus instinct

i,ltv

You are a genius
