Truly Knowing

A Good Man – Chapter 8 – JohnA Passaro

I’m doing what I know how to do,
As well as I know how to do it.

Stephen King
On Writing: The Memoir of the Craft

It is the combination of experiencing my own Manhattanhenge and the kind words I received from my two friends that convinces me my game of charades is over.

I have solved my subconscious mind’s clue.

Henry David Thoreau said: “If you can speak what you never hear, if you can write what you never read, you have done rare things.”

I must do rare things.

I must use the circumstances of my life as a catalyst to spread kindness by expressing my feelings to the people who have made a difference in my life.

There is a saying – Namaste’ which means “the divine in me recognizes the divine in you.”

I need to connect the divine.

The best way I know how.

I must write.

I must write to Bill and express to him what I should have expressed to him years ago.

That he is a good man.

That although he is presently secluded from the world, he is cared about and missed.

And I hope, beyond almost anything I have ever hoped for, that somehow by my doing so will give Bill a good feeling.

That will last his whole day.

Which will improve his outlook.

And help him get through a trying time.

As Mahatma Gandhi said:

“Action expresses priorities.”

I must do so today.
