A Larger Right

“When something seems to go wrong, it’s invariably part of a larger right.”
–Jed McKenna

 

It’s happened to me often. Something in my life seems to go incredibly wrong. Plans are missed and I start to feel stressed. Then because of the mishap I end up in a situation that feels so right and planned that I realize that while it may seem like my life has been derailed, I are still on our life’s path. Indeed it is impossible to step off of it. It is just veering off in an unexpected direction.
Once I was working in another state from where I lived. I was supposed to go home for the weekend and my plane got cancelled. I went out and met someone who’s friendship was to mean a great deal to me over the next few decades and from whom I learned a lot. Another time it felt like my life was falling apart. For a year and a half, I had lived with someone who messed up my head and with whom I plumbed the depths of my integrity. I left there and started rebuilding my life. I felt humbled and devastated. Then the pieces came together. I found a job and started building a life from the ground up. A few months later I was to meet and fall in love with someone wonderful. After fourteen years of marriage we are still together.
Each time I thought that I was lost, I found myself in better shape than I’ve ever been. At this point, I have finally learned to trust that no matter how things may feel, I am always on the right track.
Blessings, G

Mistakes No Mistake

““When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.”
― Paulo Coelho

I’d like to thank my mistakes for helping me become myself and spurring me onwards. I wouldn’t change a one of you. It seems so many of the positive things that exist in my life now (I have much to be grateful for) have come about through the events of my life falling in domino like patterns that have led me to here. I find chaos theory easier to believe in than chance these days with the universe’s dance constantly in motion. I would change nothing that has happened to me so far and if I were to meet myself as a younger man would just listen knowing that what was ahead would be by and large worth it
Blessings, G
