i have a few weird things that i think about. some come to mind a lot. others only one in a while. when i was in high school (and into college some too) i loved to ask people weird questions. such as when the last time was that they cried, who their best friend is, who they would want to meet from the past, what they would do if they could anything, etc. this is one of those once in a while things.
something i have thought about and asked people about too—-if you were walking down the street and a replication of yourself walked by, would you recognize it? this replication would not be how you see yourself…but rather how everyone else in the world sees you. would you know that it was you?
i know it’s weird. but i think about it. and was thinking about it tonight. there is a level of authenticity that i feel has escaped this lovely world…and especially the christian world. we walk in a way that makes us look different from how we feel. we mask and hide so that we are accepted, affirmed, and stable. we are all about appearances.
how am i appearing? would i even know myself if i walked right by?
