You Can't Go Wrong

Even when we feel we’ve gone wrong, made a mistake or taken a misstep, we haven’t. We’re living life the way it was intended. By being human. 
— Truth

You can't go wrong. What a nice thought. If only it were true...

But it is. You can't go wrong. No matter what. 

When options present themselves and you have the good fortune of something good or something better: You can't go wrong. 

It's like choosing the color for your new car: Hey, it's new car. You can't go wrong. 

It's like finding out if you're having a boy or girl: You can't go wrong. 

It's like picking between your favorite flavored of ice cream: You can't go wrong. 

Well, life is exactly like that. You can't go wrong. Or make a mistake. All you have are options.

"Mistakes" are to be learned from and create an opportunity to grow. To refine. To practice discernment.

"Good" choices are rewarded with good experiences. A reinforcement of what led you to make them. Of the practice of discernment. Of sound decision-making. Bravo. 

Even when we feel we've gone wrong, made a mistake or taken a misstep, we haven't. We're living life the way it was intended. By being human. 

The nature of human existence is a risk. That we ventured here as souls from Source energy was our willingness to take the trip. To buy the ticket for the earth-bound ride and ride the roller coaster. Even though it makes you gulp when you climb in and the safety harness swings down and secures you to the seat (you hope!). It gets the pulse going. It's a risk. Maybe you're gonna like it. Maybe not. Maybe you're gonna puke. Maybe not. Maybe you'll scream. And enjoy screaming. Maybe not. 

Whatever happens, happens. In any case, you can't go wrong. It's a no-lose proposition. Another new life experience. Now you know what riding this particular roller coaster is like. And you'll want to do it again. You'll want to try another one; faster, more loops, a bigger drop. Or maybe you'll find a completely different ride that's more your speed. Whatever the outcome, you learn, you grow, you had a brush with drama or fun or fright. And you made it. Moving on. 

You can't go wrong. 

There are no mistakes. Only decisions and outcomes and then better ones. Or worse ones. Doesn't matter. It all works out in the end. Nothing is forever. The nature of reality is impermanence. Just like the roller coaster ride is fleeting, so is life. If you don't like your current choice, pick something else. Change the ride. Buy a ticket for another thrill. Choose again. Choose a different amusement. Whatever you pick, you can't go wrong. 

What a relief.

The Human Condition?

Being human isn’t conditional. It’s not predicated on anything. There is no credit check. No application process. If you’re reading this, you’ve already qualified.
— Truth

Membership has its privileges.

Welcome to the club — you’re pre-approved.

What exactly is the "human condition?"

Being human isn’t a condition that can be ameliorated with a salve. It’s not a temporary state of being, at least while on this planet, anyway. It’s permanent.

And being human isn’t conditional. It’s not predicated on anything. There is no credit check. No application process. If you’re reading this, you've already qualified. Pre-conditions have been satisfied. You are human.

Welcome to the club — you’re pre-approved. Membership has its privileges. Being human is a state of being. It’s something to embrace, to celebrate and to come to terms with. You did ask to be here. You came into this time and place for a reason knowing full well what you were getting yourself into. Your soul knows why and what you are here to accomplish. And the way you can accomplish anything and everything, the true source expression of it all, is love.

So radiate love, be love, be in love. That’s human truth. It’s what makes us human beings. Not conditional humans. Being human is not a condition that needs to cured. It’s our regard for it, our perspective on it, that demands medical attention.

Best not to think of it as a condition. Like it’s something that you were diagnosed with and wonder how you contracted it and how you might cure it. It’s who we are. What we are. No salve will cure it. No balm will heal it, nor make it disappear or fade away or reverse its effects.

Solve your perspective, don’t salve your “condition.” You are human. I am human. Make the best of it: Fasten your seat belt and settle in for the ride of a lifetime.

Delicate Vessel

The heart is a robust instrument, but a delicate vessel.
— Truth

The heart is a robust instrument, but a delicate vessel. It speaks with fortitude and in multitudes yet can be easily pierced. It's vulnerable nature is its source of strength -- a subtle and confounding irony. 

For our hearts to be robust and for our message to carry forth we must be open and vulnerable. When the walls of protection go up, they insulate and quiet our message. Those with moats and ramparts around their hearts diminish their power by the very act of hardening themselves to the world. 

An open heart is the seat of strength for that is the point where divine love enters and broadcasts its clarion call of sacred soothings that carry forth on currents that can change the world.

Turtle Envy

Home—wherever you are—is being at peace, being content in your own skin... even if that skin’s a shell.
— Truth
Maui Sea Turtle

Like the enormous sea turtle I encountered on a Maui beach — it was 300 pounds at least! — who is at home in its shell wherever it happens to venture, home is wherever you are, being at peace, being content in your skin, even if that means feeling like a foreigner for a spell.

Because feeling at home is embracing and accepting however you are at the moment. Whatever is real for you right now. Accepting a true state of present awareness is your ultimate connection to home.

Remind yourself that feeling foreign in your home town means you had been feeling at home in a foreign town!
Yours truly, getting grounded in Maui

Yours truly, getting grounded in Maui

Sometimes one’s own home town can feel like foreign territory when returning from a new place, a new situation, a new environment. Coming “home” from some faraway corner of the globe or rarefied experience can make your home town feel out of place — or you out of place in it. Remind yourself that feeling foreign in your home town means you had been feeling at home in a foreign town!

Human beings are highly adaptable. Feeling foreign is a temporary state before we find our place, connect with our tribe and settle into the comfort of our own being. Not feeling at home means you did feel at home somewhere.

Find home again by reminding yourself that, like the sea turtle, you carry home with you wherever you go and home is somewhere you can be wherever you are.

Like the turtle, we can allow the awareness of "home" to be with us wherever we tread. And re-create the feelings we define as home whenever we want.

At least, until we can return to our most favorite, most familiar, perfectly-tailored shell.

Which we realize was with us all along.
