A Better Way of Life Ahead

A Better Way of Life Ahead
A Better Way of Life Ahead

What we attract in life
is either people offering the pain of learning,
or people offering the nurture of being,
and both require change, acceptance and worth,
and in that respect judgement of any is pointless,
as every circumstance, movement and choice
is simply our paths unfolding,
no oppression, no manipulation guides us,
just our decisions in reply.

The intricacy of growth
is neither fated nor proclaimed,
for our movement is determined by
our choices in response to life’s challenges,
all of which guide our path
even though the destination remains the same,
and so each obstacle, each revelation
is ours to manage in learning,
and never a personal affront or victimization.

How we judge circumstance,
becomes the manner in which we experience life,
in a panic, driven by fear or calmly attended,
knowing it will be dealt with and pass,
the choice is always ours,
and the manner in which we deal with it
either pleasant or unpleasant,
as we traverse well worn paths
of those before us.

There is nothing we cannot deal with,
no loss or catastrophe than can end us,
it is simply how we choose to confront sorrow
that determines the extent of our experience,
and in understanding each circumstance
proffers gifts to realize,
offers solace and learning that brings us
wisdom and in the end, peace,
when we understand ourselves and life more intimately.

What surrounds us we create,
as a necessity of learning and advancement,
and making judgements about it is puerile,
as it is ourselves who require it,
life that orchestrates it and time that attests it,
in our journey of ascension and wisdom,
so be at peace with your problems,
they are just lessons not yet learned,
and a better way of life ahead.

    As we grow older we never stop learning and achieving if we are open to that. Nicely penned my friend.
