So Be It.
If you point at something in your life and say, “This is bad, this is hollow, this is unjust,” there are two things that can happen. One, the universe will collaborate with you. This can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Two, the universe can respond by saying, “Yes, but over here, this is good, this is full, this is worthwhile.”
The past few days have afforded the latter, and in the true spirit of spring, I am blossoming into hopefulness. (Thanks, especially, to those who have left kind comments and sent supportive emails.)
Some say this is a simplistic view, an overly optimistic outlook. I say, “Whatever works!” And I mean it. For now, in my short history on the planet, this is the view that works for me. Things line up, the world starts to make sense, I can begin to decipher meaning and a path through it.
