Axioms to Live By
- Nakedness is private.
- Call people by their preferred name.
- The “rules” are different for God.
- There isn’t a profound reason for everything.
Like the process of sanding wood, each grain of sand shaving off a microscopic sliver of wood isn’t what to focus on. It’s the smoothed surface of the wood over the entire process that matters. Example: I clicked the wrong icon. Me: “I wonder what the purpose of that was?” This axiom was recorded out of that moment. Maybe clicking the wrong icon was part of a process (making me more patient, teaching me to click better, enforcing the thought that I’m fallible, or some other reason altogether that I don’t need to concern myself with).
- People that you don’t understand are often smarter than you (or know more than you do).
