    Probably that convictions can be a dangerous place. I’m happy to live in doubt and give voice to whatever wisdom wishes to emerge.

    I belong to a group of “nasty women”. They speak out for women’s rights, the environment, BLM, and other social issues. I agree with many of their causes, but am reluctant to publicly contribute because it could affect my job. There are a couple of issues that I personally do not agree with, but I don’t speak because I don’t want to make waves. Long story short: I need to speak.

    I’ve learned to give convictions to myself to love myself, to look after the inner child who continues to look for help. My new conviction is now to focus more on my faith and spirituality

    I have been playing with the concept of Radiating Love”. I want to be a person that radiates love.

    Those I’m not yet aware of.

    Usually, I tell my truths. I was called the “Bushman’s Lawyer” at school by my form teacher. He put me in debating and on the student council to channel my fight for the underdog and for whatever was just.

    The more I learn these many decades on, the more I know I do not know as I once thought I did. I am at peace with that. It’s hard work to be so certain of so much a lot of the time.

    We need to do something about climate change yesterday, both individually and systemically. In my unpopular opinion, we shouldn’t be doing any activities that emit large amounts greenhouse gases in the air (including cow farming, driving fossil fuel cars, factories, etc.), and we should have figured this out forever ago. We need to get this done NOW, or we’re going to die as a species, along with many other species. Why even left-wing politicians don’t see the deep urgency behind this is beyond me.

    I deeply believe people should be vaccinated, if not for themselves then for others.
    I am very concerned about family members who refuse the vaccine and have already gotten Covid. They are now long haulers, and one may die. There is no reasoning with them.

    I’m seeking ways to voice my concerns about climate change, without much success yet.

    I think living are convictions is the best way to give them voice. It’s the difference between preaching and teaching.

    This is one I need to think about more – for now I’ll share this –

    Convictions are the compasses of life – that keep us moving in the right direction.

    I find that part of the power of prayer for me is that it is an opportunity to literally give voice to my deepest convictions daily. I suppose only the future can tell what new ones may be just beyond the horizon.

    I think I have a lot to work on with this one. I often don’t voice my convictions for fear of making waves. Holding steadfast to them and being confident in myself could change this but I hadn’t really though much into it until now.

    I looked up “conviction” to be sure I answered as I wanted to. One definition was something like “conviction is passion strategized and disciplined”. In other words, passion is more emotional; conviction is enacted. I have lots of passions about our current social and political life. But how many are convictions – things I’m writing my congresspeople about, volunteering for, working daily to change, other than through social media. I guess the question I would as myself is are there passions I have to which I’m not convicted. When it’s all said and done at the end of my life, are there passions I will regret not turning into convictions? One I can think of is to live greener.

    After my meditation time, I review my beliefs and convictions daily because I’m not sure anymore. I’m practicing new perspectives of looking in order to be able to grow as a human being.

    But the deepest convctions I express everyday is: I believe in God, I believe in Life. I believe one day at a time.

    Since the door closed to live my deepest convictions and nothing I tried could change it, I stand still with it and take it as a fact. It clearly is beyond my personal reach to do anything about. I feel deeply sad about it and in the same time, I do my best to stay balanced and to be of service the various ways I am able to.

      I am moved by this Ose, and I see courage in your accepting the sadness to be.

    I don’t know….I feel I live my convictions every day….which is often the difficult road to follow – but I like myself at the end of the day.

    That is something I had never thought of…..I think, at my age, my deepest convictions have all been voiced, but this has given me something to think about…..

    The old version of myself would have had plenty to say to this question, but the person I am today has given voice to all of her convictions. I am a better person because I learned to speak my truth and to speak up for myself.

    Not sure on this one …. for the most part I freely give my opinion/thoughts and ‘tell is like it is’. I have learned when and when not to put on a filter.

    I have a deep conviction to truth and healing . I’m trying to give voice to how to ask for help to be well. I would like to be free from migraines. May we all be well. Thank you for being here with me.

    I try to live my deepest convictions every day. If I haven’t yet “given voice” to something within myself, it means that it’s not a conviction, but instead is a thought still in incubation.
