Reply To: Ego, Irony, and the Goddess,” with Bradley Olson, Ph.D.”

#74195

Your ending paragraph is so beautiful and moving and painfully true!

 

Perhaps you’ve looked around and noticed how unforgiving and thoughtless culture is becoming; aesthetic sensibilities wane as we flirt with the neo-brutalism that encroaches upon so many aspects of contemporary life. Is it possible that irony may free us from the conventional constraining literalism of existence? Through irony might we see more deeply into the metaphor that is life, and in so seeing grow wiser, more joyful, humbler, and indeed, more compassionate?

 

I feel it everyday…and the Hope for something else…

There are days when one thinks that looking in the mirror would be good ALL around.

And other days we are just doing the best we can.

Your last question feels like a prayer or a small flame lighting the darkness…

It is really beautiful…

Through irony might we see more deeply into the metaphor that is life, and in so seeing grow wiser, more joyful, humbler, and indeed, more compassionate?

I love it! We have become so serious yet deeply long for that laughter and joy…even if we are hurting too much to see it. Irony can be a freeing and healing place to be…Thank you for reminding us Bradley!
