Question: "Is Kindness only within the mind?"

Question: Is 'Kindness' only within the mind?



Or an external Presence, in the Cosmos? A benevolent Presence, that surrounds us. Or a figment of our imagination. Is it the unconscious cry for help, from a small, drowning, timid creature stuck on a rock , in the middle of the dark, cold, uncaring Universe?



When I was at boarding school, two of our teachers ran a debating society. With 3-man teams competing against one another. We would debate a motion. For, or against. I excelled at debate. The audience of peers and teachers would vote. I don't recall my team losing. A few days later, we would SWAP roles. Where I had been passionately arguing against, I now, with a perfectly straight face, 'sincerely' argued FOR.  Often enough, not always, we won again.



The curiosity always stayed with me. I'm really curious to see your point of view,  intelligently expressed. I'll even help you argue it out, because at some stage in the past, I was playing 'debating team', and arguing your case anyway.



I wonder if that's why I often seem to get along better with Atheists and Agnostics, than I do with many 'Christians'.  I'm wide open to seeing somebody else's point of view. Curious, eager to, in fact. I'm put off by the dogmatic, unflinching, Bible bashing types that seem to puff themselves up, any chance they get. And it's off to the races. Or the sermon-lecture. It's all black and white. They are saved, and I am not. Or maybe, if I listen to them very meekly, they might help me to become saved. Huh?



I am a Christian. I think. But there are those who have indignantly said otherwise.  Which leads me to ponder, often, what the difference is between little diffident moi, and those exalted, cocksure, super saved ones.  I do so usually quite gently. No ax to grind, no sermon to bash, no hidden agenda to promote. Hell, no financial contributions asked for, either.



In the coming posts, I suspect, I shall gently bump my gums about the rocky road. The twists, turns, stumbles, and the drop-offs. Especially, the drop-offs. Traversing an abyss or two, one sure gets to peek down. Half way across. Holy Moly. It's dark down there.

I submit it surrounds us. That's my humble conclusion. That, and a dollar, will get you a lukewarm coffee somewhere.



I like to scribble, 'cos it helps me work things out. Doubtless, far greater minds on Gab will consider occasionally handing me down a sliver of their resounding brilliance.



I welcome that.
