I just read a post about removing people from our lives, such as a romantic partner, or a friend in which differences forced the relationship to come to a close, only to later discover, that neither party had actually intended on removing the other at all, and that somehow it happened that way. It just happened that neither sought out the other any more, didn’t check on them any more, didn’t enquire after them any more; directions changed, situations changed, and time lapsed, too much time passed away; and those directions may or may not someday meet again.
Do you really think so?
Anything is possible. One could imagine a desired outcome, or one could imagine any kind of outcome; maybe even a predictable outcome. Who knows? Still I wonder why we make the choices we make when we make them, and then maybe revisit that choice at some point in time, only to discover that perhaps, the choice we made long ago, may not have been the best choice after all. Regrets much?
We need to recognise that when we decide on something, we also acknowledge that from here on, whatever the decision, there is a consequence for it and that it will stay with us forever. Thinking with the head has its place, but failing to listen to the heart will render the person feeling like an empty sea shell, collecting sand and wind with the tide and flow of the sea that forever repeats its music.
Place the empty sea shell against your ear, and listen to the echo of its past. The sound of the sea, repeats in that shell for ever more, until that shell is no more.
Keep moving forward and prosper.
