However, we learned today about axiology.
That’s a strong word, in my opinion.
So for those of you who aren’t aware, axiology is the study of value. The study of what you value, why you value it, how you value it . . .
It’s powerful. Values are powerful. (So I learned today)
If I had to tell you one thing about myself, it’s that I am extremely eager. I’m eager to know how others feel, how others think, how others dream. I’m eager to know how I make others feel, how I make others think, how I make others dream. I want to know answers to things that no one knows the answer to. Why is ‘blue’ called ‘blue’ and not ‘red’? I’m learning as I go, and that’s still not enough for me. I want to know more. I want to know what my purpose in life is and what my life will hold. I want to know the forecast of the next day and what time I need to be awake and what outfit I am going to wear. I’m eager to find forgiveness in those who do not believe in it and I’m eager to search for the answers to questions that I don’t know. I want to know how I’m thought about and how I’m pertained as an individual. I want to know if I make people happy and if people know that they are loved.
These things, I feel, coincide to what I value in my life.
I value knowing and exuberance and my family and bliss. I value hospitality and guidance and vision and structure.
However, knowing is not one step closer to the answer. Sometimes it is only seeping you away. Surprises scare me, but they shouldn’t. Surprises make life beautiful and compelling, keeping you on your toes.
Axiology is the study of value. The study of what you value, why you value it, how you value it . . .
It’s extremely powerful. Values are powerful. (So I’m still learning)
What do you value?
