I was just updating my completed reading list for this year so far and I noticed a very unsatisfactory trend. I am reading, on average, three books a month. Those books are nearly all “quick reads”, easy and short.
I have been feeling quite out of sorts for a little while. Here is another ‘in your face’ hint that my life is currently out of kilter. I feel a rebalancing coming on. A reassessment, even. A dropping of those activities that are not affirming the person I am and in fact are taking me into a place that is at odds with who I actually am.
γνῶθι σεαυτόν is a useful thing to remind yourself of every now and then. I have been neglecting it to my detriment and it is time to revisit it, get my priorities in order and move forward. No doubt I shall write more on this as I figure out what has been going on and what I’m going to do about it. (I can feel a list coming on…. OCD? Moi?)
