Lately I have felt the onus of the blog shifting greatly and I wanted to reiterating something that came to me a few weeks ago when I was sitting on the train going to work. Concerning this blog, I am only the care taker of this space on the Internet. I don’t own anything here nor do I want to. I really want it to be a place where one can travel with others without care for race, creed , gender, spiritual path. If the price to pay that to happen is share more of within reason then so be it.
Normally when I am asked a personal question or a question about the path I give the person asking what they want to hear and never really divulge more, unless specifically asked but I am never asked. One reason why I never divulge much about myself is because people rarely if one pays attention, want to know about you, rather they want to know that you can be put into or placed within a certain category or sub-category. The media doesn’t really help to be honest. You can feel, I think at least, the difference between someone who is asking from the place of sincerity and/or genuine friendship and one from idle curiosity.
Sometimes I tell people some outlandish things because I have an outlandish sense of humor. I told someone once who asked why though born Christian would I go over to the “other side” as he put it. I am not really a dervish, I told him. I said that I am only pretending to be one to find a great recipe for Falafel and subsequently open up a small hole in the wall selling the Middle Eastern Food I’ve mastered in the kitchen.
Comments like that end conversations quickly. But that question brings up another relevant question namely: Is it possibly for us to “talk” or interact in such a way through a blog where we can benefit from each other? Is anyone willing to try it out? Feel free to comment
