Thoughts for the day (yesterday, 11JUL2018)
Moving forward is never easy. That’s the Joy of Living! That we must toil to progress. There is no reward without having put forth the effort to succeed. Even failures can be a success, if we’ve learned, and do not stagnate in the pool(s) of disappointment and despair.
There is no growth if we’re wallowing in self pity, no point in surviving if we take on the role of ‘victim’ instead of gaining strength from having been victimized.
Words alone will rarely make it easier, but through experience can be found knowledge, understanding, wisdom. If we but seek them out, and accept that in all of Life there are lessons from which we may learn, they are ours for the taking!
Letting go of suffering does not mean we cease to fail, or feel pain, but that we revel in it/them as much as we do pleasure. Which (again), does not make the experience easy, but opens our inner selves to the possibility that we can gain as much from one as the other, and be better for it. It then becomes not a roadblock or obstacle, but a door, a gateway, a step up toward new and better experiences! Towards a higher, more aware, state of being, of thinking! It becomes a step towards being more in tune with the Universe, and more connected to it, and to all that truly matters, and not an opposition to it!
