We are always too old to worry about what can’t or doesn’t want to be changed. It’s wisdom to know when to pack up for new and healthy adventures, treasure the past and the fond memories knowing that things go their own ways. Send the past on it’s way, cherishing the beautiful memories from time to time while wishing the negative memories be left to the wishes of God. Life is a balance between being where you are now and knowing when to let life care for what is out of your control. When it involves people, especially those you love or loved, always let your thoughts be filled with wishes for their happiness for everyone needs all the good that waits for them. Ones we love, at some times we all ‘walk away’ from.
Much of life, especially when it comes to people, seems to befuddle the mind as to why’s, what’s, where’s and how’s. Many times the timing of two lives isn’t in synchronicity for a merging and melting of paths to be enjoyed, but always remain open for maybe something is overlooked.
Yesterday in downtown Portland where I do my daily ‘free speech display’ to provoke people to think deeper as well as to support the freedoms of debate and dialog that our First Amendment was so wisely created for, I was approached by a nice looking woman well into her ages. She had spent quite some time reading the varied writings on several boards and approached me thankfully in front of one of my favorite boards entitled ‘SOULMATE’. After reading it with a bit of watery blue eyes, she proceeded to tell me briefly of her story starting 12 years ago when, past 60, she met a man who became her partner in living together. She had led a spiritual life since her early years, but had never come to complete terms with some of her inner demons, and her new partner was even worse. Several years into the relationship, she told him she had enough and would be looking for a new place. Two months later, after not talking for those two months, she conveyed to her partner that she had found a place and was waling out and moving. He had been thinking a lot apparently in those two months, and told her he was seeking ‘therapy’ as well as praying and meditating. She stayed, several years have passed where they now feel like ‘soulmates’.
I told her, which she already knew, that she was his angel and he made a very wise lifetime choice given his situation being blind and alone! As she said, ‘it’s a blessing he is blind’, for his ego would never have changed if he could see. But his heart, did see the love and need he had. The woman was quite attractive and filled with the ‘spirit’ which is so rare these days especially for someone long in their years! Always be letting go and walking into the new day and dawn with love in your heart.
