"The most direct route to success
is to keep doing whatever inspires you."
-- Alan Cohen
Yes! And, here's the good news: You cannot fail to succeed. Whatever the outcome, it will be a success. Ask, and it is given. Seek, and you will find. Breathe and you shall live. Whatever is given will be returned tenfold.
One of the best things that I have learned about life is that it is impossible to fail at it. Whatever life we are living, that is a successful living. Of course, we also know that everyone does it through their own portal, their unique portal. We each choose and choose again, hundreds, even thousands of times every day.
Some live to be over 100, but not many in comparison. Some live very short lives in comparison, and most of us are somewhere in between. It doesn't matter. It's all living. Heredity, schlemedity, malady, melody, 220 or 221--whatever. What it is, it is. What it can be, it will be, as the choice to change in any direction is available to us all.
We choose tears or cheers and it's all perfect. We choose joy or pain, and it's all good. We accept or we blame, and it's all true. We love or we are fearful, and that is our truth. We find ourselves where we find ourselves. We can analyze how it came to be, and there will always be choices involved. Some creations seem to be our own, and so many feel like co-creations with others. They are all creations.
We get to feel good or not by our own design. We get to wallow in mud, or ski barefoot across the glassy lake. We can give and we receive. We can share and we can hide. We can speak and we can listen. We can think and we can write. We can delight and we can scowl. We can hold grudges, and we can release resistance. We can accept responsibility or we can lay it elsewhere.
Whether we accept our choices and our own design, or whether we say that it is all happening to us from the outside without our permission, it is what it is. It is living. It is life. Whether we believe that we can change it at will, or remain a victim with no hope of parole, it is what it is, and it is living. It is life. It is our life. And, it is a successful life. We cannot fail. Even in death, we cannot fail. Is this all there is? We can believe this is or there is more. Either way, it is what it is. We can have one dimension, or many dimensions. We can have one side, or many sides. We can await a life in Heaven, or Heaven can live every day in us. And, it is all, and in all, successful.
Life Is. I Am. We Are. It Is What It Is.
Spread Some Joy Today--by letting go of all that stuff that continues our suffering. We can choose either: holding on, or letting go.
