TO KNOW OR TO BE
interesting to see how it is possible to separate one’s values
from one’s actual life. It is as though the things learned regarding
the optimum way to live, regardless of where we have learned them, are
subject to being separated from who we really are. It is as though those
lessons can be put somewhere aside from us or kept away from us in the
books we have learned them from. This is a compartmentalized life. This
is a life of schisms. This is us playing a game with ourselves. This
behavior can become so familiar that we don’t know we are doing
it. If we do know our values and actions are separate from each other
we might justify this disharmony in some way. False justification is
big in the world. It is a natural inclination to take the easy way out
of anything difficult. It takes alertness and effort to monitor ourselves.
It then takes courage to say and do things in such a way that verifies
we have BECOME the embodiment of our values. At some point ‘BEING
OUR VALUES’ becomes our refuge in sanity. Conflict within ourselves
over what we believe and what we do is madness. When KNOWING and BEING
become one, peace rules.
