Commentator Commentary

A true commentator narrates only what is happening; an objective reporter. If we feel judged by objective commentary, then we are perceiving ourselves as the subject of objective words.  Blaming a reality or allowing ourselves to be hurt by commentary is a problem of the ego. Our pockets are filled with stones and our egos are the glass houses we’re trapped in.

No Uncertain Terms

The first rule in learning something new is that we must allow ourselves to accept our current state of ignorance on the subject. The second rule is convincing our egos that the first rule is true. Trusting the certainty of our ignorance spoils the charade of our arrogance. Wisdom will follow.

The Larceny Rescue

If we are not first responders or persons paid to save lives because we are trained to save lives, what then is our intention when we aim to save others from difficult situations that are by no means life threatening? The rescue is about what makes us feel good, which robs the other person/persons from the opportunity to learn from a mistake or difficult situation to navigate. “What are we rescuing?” becomes the question more than, “Who are we rescuing?” In these instances, we are giving first aid to our insecurities, giving them CPR and resuscitating them so they may live to see another day.  Nobody mourns the death of an insecurity. Fear mourns the death of insecurity.
