So it is with everything that we conquer and love and lose and win in the end. We evolve to the point of self-acceptance, to where we feel our souls are drawn and comfortable. What tells us where to stop? That peaceful feeling of nothingness? The smile that curls your lips for no reason at all? What we cannot control is better left outside of ourselves. Our lives need not be a struggle. Whether we feel deeply or spare our thoughts, we exist, larger than anything we can comprehend. Nothing leaves us, we are a combination of our thoughts, experiences and all that we allow to enter in. The stuff that brings us to where we are at the present moment is part of us. Without it we are lost in the great divide between something we expect and something we accept.
Fashioned outcomes are simply a wave we ride until our next great thought. What ever happens in the end we cannot control. It’s an evolution to learn to just be with it and allow our thoughts to shift us from disappointment to hope and then to confidence in our ability to create something spectacular. Affirm your belief in the abundance of the universe to quietly guide you. Listen to the whispers—they speak volumes.

Thanks, H. Sometimes this is much easier said (or read) than done, but wise words nonetheless.
By the way, you might enjoy the website of a writing acquaintance of mine. Her name is Madhu Wangu (a wonderful woman) and her website is http://spirituality-sparks.com/. There are interesting recent posts, chapters of Tao-te Ching that are very much in the spirit of what you wrote.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. You are spectacular 🙂

Thanks Susan, I skimmed Madhu’s site briefly and liked what I saw, so I’ll go back when I have more time. Hope your long weekend is full of great moments.

Believe in that guidance, nice to see you write that way. I am currently reading Power vs Force by David R Hawkins. Mother Theresa gave it good review, it’s his life’s work and it’s great, more than great it has helped me tremendously.

Hey Walter, it’s been a while. Your busy season must be in full swing. Appreciate your dropping by. I took a look at the book on Amazon. Interesting. I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.
