Thursday night thoughts

If you peel back the layers of the onion we call life, and really look at the way everything in your life happens, you will be interested. In that moment of internal review, whether it takes a day, a minute, thirty days or a life time, you will be surprised. When you finally set aside all the things that you know you are not, and really see for the first time what you are, you will be amazed. When you accept there is no other path you could have walked, to get you to where you are now, you will find peace. When you realize that no other decision could have been made for you to experience exactly what you are experiencing right now, you will lose guilt. In that instant, you will realize, each and every thing that has happened in your life is based in the desire you had to experience it, you will find acceptance. In that instant you will see, there is no way for you to fail.

  2. yes - this is so true! I have often felt that Robert Frost had it wrong: there are no two roads diverging in a yellow wood - there's only one road, and that's the road you take. There's no 'if only'. And that acceptance really does fill one with peace. Because it really isn't about what happens to you in life, it's how you respond to it. Love this post, Robert. Thanks!

  3. Thank you for this, Robert. It's well done and inspiring. Sometimes we all need to be reminded of these things. I've been doing a lot of work on my soul/source (so to speak) these days, and your writing really spoke to that.
