I am confused a lot lately for there are so many things I do not understand. There are lovely friends and family, there is this beautiful part of the world I am lucky enough to live. Have enough money, reasonable health and seemingly endless opportunities to do something positive, something truly constructive with life. Still, there is confusion.
Take the election of the next president of the USA, the rather embarrassing shambles that has worked out to be. How can this help the world forward?
Take the ongoing horrific fighting in Syria, so many innocent people killed. For what? What is humanity about?
Take what happens in Britain with Brexit. What is that all about? A grotesque spectacle, all ill-founded. Not improving any body’s life.
Take what happens with ongoing poverty all over the world, and with humans not really tackling climate change. Confusing.
The one thing I am not confused about is the actual fact that I am confused.
