departments

I mentioned last time how I finally discovered  something very important.... actually one of the most important  things we can learn about life ... that I really am not in charge of any departments.... the issue is... the problem is... that somehow I think  I am or should be in charge of a whole lotabunch of departments... that's why it is so tough... the journey from trying to control  every single thing in my life... to finally realizing ... that I am not in control of anything... that is quite a journey....   :)

How do we get there... ?  We get there by all the disasters  in our lives... all the shattered  dreams... broken pieces... failures... a tragedy or two mixed in ... inexplicable  circumstances... our plans smashed... time and time again.... in one way or another...  oh I'm sorry... I guess maybe you never had any of those things happen in your life.... Philip is the only one...right?    :)

Come on now... things happen  all the time... to all of us... that is just the way life is... in this world... stuff happens all the time... all our frustration  comes because we don't think  life is supposed to be like that ... what ever happened to "and they all lived happily ever after.." ?

It's pretty simple... the answer to "whatever happened to living happily ever after" .... simple answer... it just is not true...  it is a lie...

The truth is.... we have been born into the middle of a war... we have an enemy... that enemy is out to destroy us....

Hmmmm..  give that one a little thought... it goes against all my understanding of life... my superior intellect just rebels against such a thought.... it says no.... nonsense I say... and you know why....  'cause I just don't think things should be that way... people should just be able to live happily ever after... at least the ones who are as wonderful as Philip.... but... like it or not ... until we get there... until we actually believe somebody is trying to kill us... every day... in a zillion different ways... until we get there.... there is not a whole lot we can do to fight back... can't fight an enemy that we don't even believe we have....

Even when we finally believe  that we actually have an enemy....there is so much more to learn ... before we can ever get to the place... where we can see we can't do anything about it... where we see ... we are not in charge of ... anything.

Guess I'll have to say more about that next time.
