The Human Condition Has and Always Will Be
I’ve been watching James Boag on yogaanytime talking about Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, which were written thousands of years ago. And the main theme that strikes me each time I watch and listen is the fact that the human condition always has and always will be. Meaning, the world, in whatever form it takes (Medieval, Modern, Post-Modern) will always present unique challenges and opportunities. And it is the human’s task to navigate those challenges, and decipher which of those challenges present opportunities for growth and personal evolution.
That is to say:
The challenges might be unique to the time in which we experience them (like the mise-en-scène of a futuristic or historical movie set has different props, technology, and costumes) but the questions remain the same, because humans essentially remain the same, and the questions that plague the human condition do not change.
And in that vein, I’ve been thinking about how this concept applies to Lobby4Love.
Lobby4Love and the Human Condition
Lobby4Love is not about having all the answers. I don’t confess or profess to have all the answers. Far from it. But what I do have is lots of questions. Questions that, sometimes meet with answers via my own experience, and other times lead to more questions that in turn lead me onto further quests to seek those answers.
So let’s say that Lobby4Love is the perpetual pursuit of questions and answers around the human condition, and specifically relating to the concepts of Fear and Love.
Why bother, you might ask?
Because this is life. This is the human condition. This is what makes me tick. Lifelong learning. Always questioning and challenging, seeking and finding. All the while being humble about what we think we know, and always remaining open to unlearning what we thought we knew and relearning anew (and then repeating that process).
Until next time, lobby4lovers.
