Once you have the idea of your home as a refuge – the change wrought in your activities is automatic. Then comes the will to be “yourself.” Most times, our days and nights are spent being in public, preparing for the public, or repairing from the public.
We all know that “society is commonly too cheap.” We meet at short intervals and do not have enough time to acquire any new values for each other.
The first concrete thing which will result from staying at home is the discovery that you are doing something you have always wanted to do. But, there is something you want to do; but, you will never do it until you learn to stay at home.
But, to be puttering around the house is still not the same as the kind of solitude I am speaking about which is actually setting up time to think and letting your mind roam. The first experiments in thinking creatively will probably result in failure. Your brain will be hopping all over the place. You must realize that thinking is only a process of talking to yourself – intelligently.
Take any subject – like the election or the Covid 19. Take the pros and the cons and discuss what you don’t like about each and how you will live with the results. It is important because the 2020 election will change our lives if the Democrat socialists are in power. The country will be taken to the bottom of the pit with no Constitution as we have witnessed during the Obama administration and the high taxes and misery of what they put on us.
At this point, they won’t tell us what their plans are – like Obama who lied. We must insist before we vote to tell us what their plans are. Right now, all we hear are lies.
We must think this through and make the right decision – our lives depend on it.
