“How did we come up with the notion
that life is not okay just the way it is,
or that it won’t be okay the way it will be?
Who said that the way life
naturally unfolds is not all right?
The answer is, fear says so.
Everything will be okay
as soon as you are okay with everything.
And that’s the only time everything will be okay.”
— Michael A. Singer
I’ve heard people say, “it was meant to be,” and I’ve also heard them say, “it was not meant to be,” as if we are not in control of our own lives and our own environment. I was thinking a bit about this and wrote down these notes:
If it was not meant to be, it would not have happened. Sometimes we ask why? This is not the best question. A better question would be, what can I learn from this? or what is this here to teach me?
And here’s something even better. It is. And now that it is, it is an opportunity. It is an opportunity to see what we can learn. It is an opportunity to learn how to flow with life. It is an opportunity to change our perspective. It is an opportunity to love and let go of fear. It is an opportunity to allow us to experience more joy.
