I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THE KALEIDOSCOPE OF GAY LIFE






As much as we may say that we want peace and quiet
and a life without struggle, the truth is that human beings are currently
thriving in a world of dualities and challenges. And this is
 ESPECIALLY true for GAY men; NOT only do we have to wade through the waters of society,
but we have to find our footing within the
 GAY community. Within the community, we tend to gravitate
toward others that are most like us, @ least in the ways that make us feel
comfortable. Though there is
NOTHING wrong with this, I feel that it is important we are of ONE
accord yet living our lives together DIFFERENTLY. 





Hence these DIFFERENCES come into play when LIFE brings us into contact with other GAY men that challenge us with their DIFFERENCES. It may be an obvious DIFFERENCE reflected in their outward appearance OR
an invisible but powerful idealistic stance.
Within the
 GAY community
there are those that confront us with their
 DIFFERENT ways of experiencing and expressing life. Our NATURAL reaction is to resist, but I feel it is better if we
choose to learn from them
 AND appreciate that they too have a place in the KALEIDOSCOPE of life. When we choose to approach these so-call
hurdles with a
 POSITIVE attitude,
this can determine how we sail over them. This is the
 ONLY way to ensure that we learn AND grow, developing depth of our character AND the shades of our understanding. In a world of
dualities, we have trouble defining ourselves without something opposite thus
we can’t discover who we are.
 





AS SPIRITUAL BEINGS WE ARE EXPERIENCING THE PHYSICAL WORLD IN ALL
OF ITS STARTLING CONTRAST & BEAUTY, WHY NOT START WITH DIFFERENCE THAT
MAKES US WHO WE ARE? IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO WALK WITH AWARENESS WHEN DEALING
WITH EACH OTHER. IT IS SAD THAT WE DO NOT TAKE THE TIME TO APPRECIATE EACH
OTHER; WE JUST LIMIT OUR STEPS BY NOT EMBRACING THE COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE. AS WE
WALK, WE CONNECT WITH THE EARTH & HER PEOPLE. EACH STEP WE TAKE WILL LEAD
US TO BECOMING MORE MINDFUL OURSELVES. WHEN WE BECOME MORE MINDFUL, WE
GRADUALLY INCREASE OUR AWARENESS OF OUR GAY BROTHERS THAT MAKE UP THE
KALEIDOSCOPE OF LIFE…
