What spoke to me in this especially was how you wrote "need". I expected it to read, as I've heard others say, "I should not fear". But the realization that all humans fear, maybe hold onto it, so we don't have to move on or work through a loss. It's a journey, like you said about the blessings. The blessings of life, of family, of specific things in our lives. We must be thankful for them, no matter how long they are present in our lives.
Too often I find myself unable to acknowledge the happiness in my life for fear that as soon as I do so it will be taken away.
The Greeks' sense of hubris is akin to taking your blessings as an entitlement, which they felt angered the gods. I think it is a defense mechanism which springs from deep seated catastrophes.
To be free of this sense of foreboding would be unparalleled joy indeed.
These are profound words which will make one sit back and think. Yes there is fear when everything unfolds with
happiness and bliss something bad happens. At the same
time we should not forget how this happiness was attained thanking the Almighty and be grateful for each
day that comes with a smile.
Just straightforward and to the point. Many people has this kind of fear, as if you enjoyed the good bad happy moments, something bad would happen. Or one may think "this is a good thing, but what's the catch? ". We miss many things fearing of their loss when we should be enjoying them. Great piece and great form.
