In the seemingly unending quest for the ideal life, humanity has consistently found itself at odds with defining the ideal.
Perhaps this is as it should be, because in the grand scheme of things, it is truly difficult to establish a permanent ideal. The old adage “familiarity breeds contempt” has upended all kinds of ideals, the ideal house, the ideal job, the ideal relationship, on and on.
In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul wrote of “seeing through a mirror, darkly.” Distorted thinking had clouded their judgment. This had led them to make some unwise decisions.
Life is no different today. We become fixated on controlling our lives, instead of living them with flexibility. Flexibility is the ideal state of mind. Keep stepping my friends!
