Here are some of the words they suggested: strong, romantic, kind, open-minded, considerate, intelligent, sophisticated, subtle, affectionate, athletic, adventurous, entertaining, noble (I really liked that one), playful, caring, well educated, loyal, successful, fun, funny, sweet, outgoing, introspective, artistic, thankful, dedicated, sincere, generous, selfless, sensitive, loving and passionate, unique; others told me exactly the opposite.
Oh yes, the one everyone agreed with, complex; then how is it that I think of myself as transparent and simple.
Odd, isn’t it.
So I consulted “Bring Me the Rhinocerous”, a wonderful book by a wonderful fellow who calls himself John Tarrant and found this bit of wisdom: “What we believe about ourselves does not stand up to examination, so there is always the problem of describing our own lives in a plausible way. The old teachers named this insubstantiality ‘emptiness’”. Emptiness, hmmm…sort of like that ‘know nothing mind’…hmmm, very zen….
Maybe this will help…I am financially independent and love my son dearly.
