Wake up – Salvation is now!
There’s always going to be someone better, stronger, smarter, richer, more beautiful or talented than you. With the wrong attitude it can make you feel defeated even before you begin.
But does life have to be such a challenge/competition? Must you always do better? Who even decides what the best is? What is the point of striving to accomplish great or little things and still feel empty? Why are we really here? Why bother?
What I’ve learn’t is that nothing is a guarantee, there’s no one right way, only the willingness to take the risk – in life and especially in love.
Forgiveness is to offer no resistance to life – to allow life to live through you. The alternative is conflict, pain, suffering. What you deny, you lack. You need the blessing you can offer others. There is no way to have it except by giving it.(Ekhart Tolle)
