Bless The Experience

            I learned something.  I learned to ’bless the experience’.
            For if the experience has been a negative one,
            has left me with a hurt so deep, has filled me with anger,
            then I must bless it.  For in the blessing I remove
            its power to hurt me again.  I leave it impotent, unable.
            I’ve taken the wind out of its sails and
            there it sits, blessed for the teaching,
            but unable to wield power over me again.

            If the experience is a positive one, I bless it.
            In like manner, it will remain powerful and upon recall,
            able to confer its goodness time and again.
            In my thinking happily on it,
            I will automatically bless it again.

            Life is a blessed experience, all of it. 
            Bless it generously and gratefully. 
            It teaches us magnificently and impartially.
            These are the magic words.  For in the unhappy experience
            we are taught swiftly and surely and must bless the lesson.
            In the happier one our pleasurable memory is our
            reward.  In blessing all of it, we make our truce with life

            and secure our place in it forever.

Observations

If you do not intend to look back,
it’s best to remember to lift the plow.

Wishes are as potent a force
as fishes swimming in live water.

Under adverse conditions,  we become
more of what we are.

To think is a holy obligation.

Nothing gets done in this world unless a somebody’s
back breaks, a somebody’s legs ache and at least a
somebody’s mind  splinters and a heart rips apart.

The world no longer tolerates the thinkers.  They have
become recluses in ribbons of concrete.

The thoughtful ones cannot find a place to be asked a question
requiring the time to raise their eyes unto the hills and back for
a reflective answer. 

The visionary has the look of one used to focusing on
the horizon.   I would place my life in the hands of a visionary.
He /she will be around for the long haul as a participant in the vision.
