Appreciate the Life You Have

We all must make choices in life. We all make mistakes and suffer the miserable knots of regret. But the negative perspective can be transformed through willpower. The human will is a pliant force. This force can be a double edged sword however.

Like this eel, our will can also trap us in a net of unreality. The distortion of reality by powerful desires can warp our perceptions and urge us to believe in our own self-created magical thinking. In this way we are ensnared by untruths and blinded to the truth by our cravings.

The ravages from raging against reality can consume our vitality and deplete our life-energy. If we are not careful we can become engulfed by the gray bleakness of unfulfilled desire, and the divine spark could be extinguished.

Find the sunlight. Seek the companionship of others. Do not restrict yourself to just your own thoughts. The will to change must come from a balance of interaction and quiet contemplation. Seek the real. Find the truth. Set your foot onto the path with grace and good intentions.

The life you have contains all the universe. The life coursing through your veins waxes and wanes with the tug of willpower. Appreciate what you have been given and cultivate your inner realm in order to see your path. When you discover the true path, stride forward into a brighter future of your making.
