What’s the point of it all?
Divorce is rated the second biggest stress to the death of a child or a spouse. Even after years of being divorced you can still find fragments of guilt and anger. Divorce or any life altering event gives us the opportunity to look ever so closely at the heart of our psychological make-up and the choices we have made from that.
There are many forks in the road to choose from. All I ask is whatever you choose, choose it consciously. And what you choose is what you focus on, creating your reality. There is truly no greater wisdom and the key to continued happiness than to know yourself. Understand what makes you tick and then ask yourself what you want honestly. Set the goal and also be open to what comes into your life. Practice the mindset of seeing opportunity in every circumstance that presents itself. Have structures and plans in place for tendencies that push you off track.
If you feel the struggle and pain it is often the signal that you are not accepting the flow of life. I invite you, if you haven’t already, to jump in completely and immerse yourself in whatever is going on in your life-drink, taste, and feel it touch the very core of your soul. This is what being human is really all about. See all the pushes and pulls as a wake up call to what you truly want in your life. You are the artist creating a masterpiece that is your life-your contribution to humanity.
Let go of all that no longer serves you-anger, resentment and guilt. There is no real guarantee of the next moment. And life is given to you and me without any real effort on our part.
So what’s the point of it all? To breathe, to live, to expand and to create. We are given god like qualities to create our realities. Really what more can any of us ask for?
