What do you stand for?

Postby Sabina » Sun Feb 14, 2010 12:32 pm

Let's play a game... we can get to know each other a little better by playing it.

This is the question and these are also the possible answers:

what-do-you-stand-for.jpg

Pick one!
If someone before you has already selected one of these pretty nouns it is automatically out of the game, not available anymore. In that case pick another one that suits you best out of those that are still available.

My answer is Honor.
Your turn. :)

I stand for Harmony... but it's not on the list so I am choosing Equality.

It is nice spiritual patchwork.
I would also use harmony, but as Ryan said it was not on the list. Anyhow, he would have picked it before me =0/ , so I stand for Friendship.

The choice is easy. I will BE THE ONE which is the most USEFUL?

But I will need a few days to ponder the meaning of USEFUL.
is it bring me the most friends, bring me the most money.
bring me the Easiest time in Life, maybe, it is the one that
will bring me the Most esteem in the eyes of strangers and
those close to me. Is useful the one that will cause me
to have the least amount of emotional pain in life?
... happiness forever is that what useful is?

Hi Alvino,

While you are pondering the meaning of useful I just thought I'd point out that the word "USEFUL" is not on the list, it is not part of the picture, and it is about selecting something that is a part of the patchwork and still available (that no one else picked it before you).

Sabina

PS: Happiness is also not on the list, just in case you consider that next. :)

I'd choose Giving. It's the best way to have my heart filled with happiness.

OK I now understand and I finished my pondering:

JUSTICE == as I see it there is not a single one on the Patch work
that does not require the use of Justice to determine the length and
depth of its use to ensure that it = honesty, empathy, compassion, friendship, etc
will not be done in a way that will harm more then help the giver
or receiver of any listed virtue.
I am sincerely Grateful for any and all help given to me. Thanks Folks.

I realized that I have only chosen Friendship without explaining why. Well, here it is.
Friendship encompasses many things that I stand for as they make me feel the whole as I am:
Giving of that what I can give: heart, energy, time, thoughts, dreams, sharing...
Receiving of that what my friend offers and by that learning over the time about receiving, learning, understanding, accepting, changing, reflecting...
Joy, creativity and happiness are the part of that sharing and living it all give the purpose to life.
