Over the holidays I read prose, poems and thoughts that expressed, the reality of feeling alone in life. Gave me pause to think about my own life, my memories, and the people who have come and gone over the years.
There were days, nights even weeks, when I was lost in a dreamworld of my own. Questioning the emotion of love, of loving being loved, What I have learned over the years, is forget about expectations, they are your journey and no one elses. Two people can stand in the same room side by side, and not see the same things at all.
In PL, we are given the tools to realize that the person we have to love is ourselves, only in knowing who we are, and our needs can we share them with someone else. Unconditional love is not easy. But I believe it is attainable. To know sadness, you have had to know happiness. Being human is not a flaw, it is a blessing. To experience life, we have to let go and welcome new energy.
Everyone wishes to be happy and lead a happy life. In PL we can experience true joy and happiness when we are able to freely express our unique individuality )Makoto) in each moment of our lives/
Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition
Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it
Found this quote in one of my profiles. I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.
There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”. For sure, what I am living is my personal experience. Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen. Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present. To succeed I have to be present.
Every frame of the “scenes” being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”
Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.
