Soul Musings/Day 8: Promises and Dignity

street post with promises ave and reality way signs

There are actually many parts to a promise though it may seem linear. For today the one aspect that I would like to reflect on is this.

We are human beings that live in an uncertain world with change as the common denominator. That means when we make a promise, or receive a promise from someone, we cannot predict what the future will bring.

In other words, life happens. In the world of human dignity life comes before promises.

Breaking promises” will happen. To treat ourselves and others with dignity as human beings we must remember that we cannot predict the future….and that allowing a space for the action of letting ourselves and others “off the hook” through renegotiation restores dignity.



Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time

Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day.  Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.

Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship.  Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
