FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Refusing to be disillusioned is the cause of much of the suffering of human life.
... And this is how that suffering happens;
When we love someone we demand total perfection and righteousness from them,
and when this does not happen, we become cruel and vindictive;
Yet we are demanding of a human being something he/she can not possibly give...
If our trust is placed in human beings, we will end up despairing of everyone!
I say there is only one Being who can completely satisfy to the absolute depth
of the hurting human heart!
(paraphrasing Oswald Chambers~)
Ask yourslef, are you disillusioned? It means having no misconceptions, false impressions,
False judgements in life; it means being free from these deceptions!
Lofty thought are good... as long as you acknowledge that they are not necessarily the ideal.
Becoming stripped of your illusions can be an absolutely painful experience;
Growing up and maturing, not so fun but it has its perks :)
