‘We all want to play a part, but only by going through the isolation of finding our own place do we find our way.’

‘We all want to play a part, but only by going through the isolation of finding our own way, do we find our place and our peace.’

(alternatives) ‘We all want to play a part, but only by going through the separation of finding our own way, do we eventuallly find our place and our peace.’ 

‘We all want to play a part, but only by going through the separation of finding our own place do we find our peace.’

It is both a long journey and a short one. A long one throughout a life of experimenting and discovering, but a short one as we interact with our next encounter. ‘What is my part in this, here, now? What should my response be? Is there a right way for me to play my part? Who is judging the right way?

All I know is I have a sense of wanting to be part of a bigger plan, I want to feel part of a bigger picture, a bigger reason than me, to stand together in.

Its painful to purposefully choose to walk the isolated road. To choose to answer the call in your mind to do it this way not that way, to hope that its a good way. It also feels slightly pompous, ridiculously sentimental and self absorbed. I’m after faced with the passage from the bible ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Luke 10. 27 . So do I have to be in a place of loving myself to be able to love my neighbour?
