Nice to exist
When all is said and done, we are fortunate to have existed. It is a privilege.
I recall reading a book by an American Indian Black Elk who during his life fought, killed, scalped, raped and tortured. Later he became a sideshow performer. What remains interesting is how out of such experience emerged such an accepting, wise, and peaceful person.
He alludes to “the Great One.” Had he not existed, rough edges and all, such realizations would never have been. What a marvel this is.
