There are some things that are difficult to describe to others. Some things, nobody is going to get, no matter what you say or do. There are some ideas that one has to suss out for oneself.
If you have read some of my stories about dreamtime meetings with alternate or past selves, you can tell I am a believer in life being a journey, not a destination. There is nothing wrong with giving someone a little nudge though, in the hope it changes things a little.
As I say, they were nice young people, intelligent enough to know when their time was being wasted. I do not suspect what I had to say (including a history lesson on the New Testament by the way, something they obviously had no idea about) had any influence at all on their thinking, but they did get me thinking. Perhaps God (or was it my muse Aadi?) does move in wondrous ways.
These young salespeople represent a disturbing subsection of society for me. They are those who think that for everything there is a single truth, and if we can only find it, we don't need to think anymore.
One Answer for every Question.
Sounds pretty boring to me, but you knew that about me already didn't you? :-)
The interesting thoughts, by the way, were
1. how happy I am to be someone who doesn't twist myself into knots anymore trying to be who others think I should while at the same time, am happy to accept that others have the very same right to be themselves,
2. how I recognize myself as one who cannot resist an opportunity to apply a strategic nudge.
I'd love to know if one of those young women takes the time to research the history of the New Testament.
