There are times in life…..

There are times in your life where:

You just don’t feel good.

You wish for a Prince Charming or Princess Aurora,

And you get Malificent and King Farquaad.

You want Disneyland, and you the the “House of Horrors”.

But, you know what….

The good news is, it won’t last forever.

I’ve been dealing with some “health issues” (let’s leave it at that) lately.  Real or imaged, stress induced or genetic, terminal or maybe it is just nothing at all.  It really doesn’t matter.  All of these thoughts, feelings and emotions have passed through the sails lately, and I’m ready to see land again.  Even if the island is deserted.

The good news is, it won’t last forever. Nothing lasts forever.original_1345070734

I learned this by watching the monks.  Watching a Tibetan monk spend days and days on end, in silence, with colored grains of sand.  Speck by speck, building one of the most beautiful mandala’s I have ever seen.  Each piece of color-dust was a thoughtful, intended decision. And…. with each speck, the mandala would change.

I kuan-yin-riding-dragon_346x432learned by riding a stalking dragon.   It was 8 seconds of pure chaos and madness, then silence and calm.

I learned: It won’t last forever.

Nothing lasts for ever.

These times in your life …  do not last forever.
