A Jesuit priest taught me a four-letter word that I want to share with you: some.
“Some” is a very important concept we often forget about in our all-or-nothing, do-or-die, black-and-white mentality. The reality is that nothing in our lives is ever “all or nothing.”
You can love and hate someone at the same time.
You can be brilliant and dense simultaneously.
Life is full of these contradictions and paradoxes. Yet for some reason, the concept of some-ness is scarce in our society.
This week’s spiritual-religious advice: contemplate some-ness.
