This evening I attended a talk by a philosopher. He had some interesting ideas and I think I liked him as a person.
But he did not engage me. He didn’t have a clear story arc and the thoughts were a torrent lacking punctuation. Consequently, I put all my effort into following him, with no capacity nor space to process and entertain his message.
My life can be a bit like his talk. I can lose a clear sense of my story arc. My activity can be a noisy barrage, lacking the paragraphs and chapter breaks essential for context, clarity, meaning and rest.
Time to clear up my narrative.
