Experiences

“Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.”
– Aldous Huxley

I have worked hard at steering clear of thinking or saying things like, “he did this to me” or “they did that to me”, the truth is people do what they do for themselves. They act out of their own stuff and not mine. They do not do things to me, they do things for themselves that may have an effect on me but they do not do them to me!

My friend and mentor Jack says, “victims are victimized”. Certainly we can all make a case that we have been victimized but the point is when we live in the pain and not the solution we are stuck as victims. Life is too good to get stuck, we are here for a flicker, we need to live with passion, vigor and purpose. Don’t allow set-backs to hold you back, view them for what they really are, a set-up for a come-back!

Go, Go, Go…

So grateful that I’m not a victim and that I don’t ever have to be. Living in the solution is where it’s at. When I stay focused on that, I have more of it and life is much better. I also do at least one thing that I’m very passionate about each day. That helps keep the fire for life burning inside me! Thank you for making this blog Dan! You rock!

Hello Dan,
As to the first thought, the blame game! We must pray to understand and that includes when people wrong us. By doing this we find compassion and realize in most cases it is not personel, they are acting out due to their own spiritual inbalance. One of my favorite sayings is, I wish to live a life where people resent me. I have enough of my own baggage and definitly do not have room to carry others. Hey!, here a thought the forth step! As to your second thougt, most of of focus on the window that has closed, that we don’t see a new window opening. Do not live in the problem, thru prayer and meditation the answers will come, not on our time, but Gods!
Love ya,
William
