An Inside Story 86
TWO WORLDS 33 – PART 2…
THE BOND that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life ~ RARELY do members of one family grow up under the same roof ~ THERE is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands, you seek problems because you need their gifts ~ IMAGINE the universe beautiful and just and perfect, then be sure of one thing, God has imagined it quite a bit better than you have.
A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulse – this is the place to go now, but the sky knows the reason and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons ~ YOU are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it true, you may have to work for it, however.
THE world is your exercise book, the pages on which you do your sums. It is not reality, although you can express reality there if you wish. You are also free to write nonsense, or lies, or to tear the pages ~ IF you will practice being fictional for a while, you will understand that fictional characters are sometimes more real than people with bodies and heartbeats.
YOUR conscience is the measure of the honesty of your selfishness, listen to it carefully ~ EVERY person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there, what you choose to do with them is up to you ~ THE truth you speak has no past and no future, it is, and that’s all it needs to be ~ IN order to live free and happily, you must sacrifice boredom, it is not always an easy sacrifice.
DON’T be dismayed at good-byes, a farewell is necessary before you can meet again, and meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends ~ THE mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy, what a caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly ~ EVERYTHING written here may be wrong…
