An inhabited island

We must choose how to interrelate with others and so the need arises for an acceptable yet authentic identity
In every sense our ego is our version of the truth of life. We cannot grasp reality at all without ego, we cannot interact, we cannot even centralise our own consciousness into any defined point of comprehension. We come to notice that we clash egos with people who significantly differ form us on matter of deepest importance. On a grand scale this explains religious wars and the mutual disgust between the haves and the have-nots. As we mature we soften our insistence upon our version of truth and open up more to the fact that others are free to exercise their right to see things differently to us. They inhabit their little island and we ours.

When we discover new talents we usually improve our circumstances
Humanity is capable of discovering a desert island and making it fit for purpose through our skills at cultivation. Equally, as individuals, we can make any situation work if we use what we know to produce what we need.
We need not get lost in snobbish complacency and self-indulgence, though we can always find a way to function in complete independence of unfriendly elements.
However barren we may find our current life circumstances, they can always be improved. We need to attract and discover the resources we will employ in order to make things happen the way we want them to be. Always around us are people and things that we can usefully involve ourselves with to better our position.
We simply need to capitalise on what we have – to notice our hidden talents and potentials, and to see how they fit the demands of the situation at hand. Very often the talents develop and show themselves to exist as a direct result of our response to situations. On other occasions, having the talents make us look for situations so that we can practise them.
Achievement, of any lasting worth, requires creative opportunism and exceptional inventiveness. We have to rise to the occasion, and actually it is the rising itself that matters.
This is a symbol of self-adequacy. In hard terms, reality objectifies our inner sense of being – so we must rise to outer challenges in order to come to terms with inner limitations. These self-imposed constraints are false, because, on the inner plains of experience, we are beyond all limits.
It is taught – if we can imagine it, then we can have it. The very least of our inner promises to ourselves is potentially available if only we would learn to nurse the seedling dream to become ripe fruit.
