Talking or listening, God and first love

june 23 2008

Manic Monday #122

Are you a talker or a listener? Is it ever possible to really be both?

Oh yes, it's possible.

As a psychologist I have to be able to listen well, to hear the untold, but I also have to be able to talk well, to convey my message, to ask my questions.

Outside my profession I can be both a talker and listener too.
Not always at the same time.

There are social events, like some birthdays, where I hardly say a word. These are the times that a sweet smile does wonders. Helping someone who can't reach for a cup of coffee.
I used to be ashy, and at those moments I either feel at ease or sink back in the past feelings.
As long as other people don't mind I don't.

But I can also be the person who gets a whole party going.
Sometimes people even invite me for that.
When I feel OK, I'm able to radiate that and it influneces people in a good way, I've been told.

Do you think God has a sense of humor?

He's almighty, it's said. But the way people suffer in this world makes me doubt a god like a picture of a human being excists.

I don't think that God can be described as a human being.
So humor isn't a characteristic.

I don't want to offend people reading this, but I think that people create their own god in their minds and it's often like a person.
That's why they can say that countries are blessed, or wars.

I don't believe that.

What I do believe is that there's a power that is much larger than we can understand.
The power that has set this universe in motion.

The way I reach out is in human words, in a human frame of mind, with human feelings.
It's like stretching my hand out in the evening starlit sky.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Have you ever experienced it?

Yes, I do believe in love at first sight and I've experienced it.
More than once.

The times following those moments were among the most beautiful of my life.
Sadly life itself was stronger than the loves.
