“ Practically speaking, a life that is vowed to simplicity, appropriate boldness, good humor, gratitude, unstinting work and play, and lots of walking, brings us close to the actually existing world and its wholeness. ”
Your latest post on True & Brave speaks volumes, and articulates a part of why I post online as well. I am not a man, but what you say is true for women as well, I think. Although, the yearning for the wild inside is expressed a little differently, is all. One thing: could you elaborate on what you mean by the term 'wild'? The term is a lot like how we use 'love': it's a loaded concept.
Thanks, I’m glad you connected with it. I think you’re right, it’s just expressed differently, but what we’re referring to is the same.
As far as elaborating on the term ‘wild,’ you compared it to the word ‘love’ and I think that’s an appropriate comparison, so I’ll take that a little further and compare and contrast the terms to illustrate my point.
I think love is expressed differently for different people, and it doesn’t look the same for you as it does for me, and how we feel it is even different, but ultimately we’re getting at the same idea. some people say love is “sacrificially doing something for someone else’s best interest” and I think that’s a really good description. some people think they’re in love when they like how someone makes them feel, but that’s not love, the same way that being wild doesn’t mean being reckless.
