ACCEPTANCE MONTH: DAY 23: “Accept the universe
As the gods gave it to you.
If the gods wanted to give you something else
They’d have done it.
If there are other matters and other worlds
There are.”― Alberto Caeiro
We all have a story about “what needs to be changed” in the world around us. That is not our job here. Our job here is to follow the path we are here to walk, live the life we are here to live, and be the person we came here to be.
How does a person do this? Well, I know I tried a lot of paths, all of them what others thought I should be doing. Everyone has advice to give. It is worth nothing. They did not have my path in their hearts. I do. I just did not know that.
Sobering up is an incredible thing. It removed SO many barriers that kept me from accessing my heart. I began this recovery process and found more barriers and they were removed, and then I was able to begin to access my heart. And I knew then what I know today; that this writing by Mr. Caeiro is true. I have a specific path here.
It has been twisty and turny and sometimes seems to go back to the beginning point, but never quite does. And everything in my life is exactly what and where and how it is supposed to be. Today I think I AM the laughing Buddha!
