I have prayed the St Augustine’s prayer.
Afoot lies nothing as I or we want to know more about this world and those around us.
~ Sometimes I want to study theology or philosophy at a doctorate level. But I am always restricted by myself not having the monetary means and the courage. So, it remains but a dream.
But there is more because I also have heard about the BOOK I CHAPTER 2 of the Imitation of Christ – humbled self-opinion. This is where I seem to agree or understand that one does not have to have a doctorate. With humility, to have knowledge on how to help a person that has mental illness, anxiety and depression, through sharing, is possible.
Going through many years of therapy, and in the last 2 weeks, I was able to share with others in a group. The licensed leader of the group only had to start off the subject and the group became functional. What I mean by functional is that the members were engaging in therapy through sharing.
Where one shared, the other identified, and sometimes shared their own coping skill.
So, although I do not have a doctorate, I continue to share my experience, and now coping skills to others who will listen. – I hope eventually to form a small group who meet at least twice a week to share.
