One Tao-ish thing I know for sure…
In this incarnation on this planet I have already lived through every sort of experience I will ever have good or bad. Isn’t that a comforting thought in an out there sort of way?
There will be now more new surprises. Nothing bad will ever happen that I cannot survive. Why do I know that for sure? I know because you name it I’ve already done it or its been done to me… much to my chagrin... sometimes more than once.
ü I’ve survived the loss of financial status…check!
ü The death of loved ones…check!!!
ü Losing the friendship of someone I thought was a good friend… check!
ü I’ve been used, abused, lied to and cheated on… and vice versa. I've used, abused, lied and cheated... double check!
Another really cool thing I’ve realized; for every so called bad experience I’ve had… a good one has always followed and vice versa. You might say the seed of one was germinating in the other.
Here’s an example of what I mean by that… shortly after my divorce from husband number one I was cruelly, brutally dumped by a boyfriend I thought I loved. And I gotta' tell ya'… it hurt like Hell.
For YEARS I foolishly pined over this man. I thought I’d never ever get over the emotional anguish of it all. But now looking back on the volatile nature of our relationship all I got ta’ say is “thank god and greyhound he’s long gone.”
Thanks for listening… until next time
