    Default [B]An INFJ Philosophy[/B]

    What greater good is there than
    That which brightens an otherwise dreary day,
    That occurs at our moment of greatest need,
    That which from despair comes rebirth, and a fresh perspective?
    What greater good is there than
    That which opens our hearts and abates our most virulent desire,
    That we may be fulfilled by a love so pure, and so deep
    That for one glorious moment we realize we’re not alone,
    We’ve never been alone,
    We’ll never be alone.
    Our saving grace is found in despair,
    and that is the greatest good.

    What greater wisdom is there than
    Knowing our human condition,
    Knowing that we will always strive towards order,
    But as is the paradox of our universe,
    We create entropy,
    Disorder and chaos.
    Only in letting go will the universe be set right;
    Only through true expression of ourselves,
    Freedom, incontinent desire,
    And trusting those desires to be for good,
    For reason, for love.
    For this is the only thing not born from imitation and inculcation;
    It is the only thing natural,
    The only thing rational,
    The only thing not afraid to be irrational.

    -- I wrote this about 6 months ago. I don't remember what inspired it, but I found it today and thought I would use it to introduce myself. It's true to my beliefs for the most part, but there are a few words in particular that make me a little insecure, namely "incontinent desire". I meant it in the purest sense, but it could certainly be misinterpreted if taken out of context, and it sort of contradicts what I said about abated desires, though I meant desires of a different form.

    Your philosophy is very bold
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    It's strange that it should be so bold, and my disposition so modest.
