Action, Reflection, Action

What we believe to be real comes through are words, but the better communication of our deepest understandings is our behavior. We live our beliefs more than we profess them.

I think there’s something good about saying what we believe. I’m a person who decides what I think by saying it and, in some cases, writing it. But when I want to know where the truth settles in me, I reflect on what I’ve done, what I’ve left undone, and how I’ve proceeded in life. I think most people are this way. We live into and out of life.

CPE calls this Action/Reflection, and I add another Action at the end because I do; then I reflect on what I’ve done; and then I do again. After all those moves, belief emerges clearly.
