Journal Entry #637
February 11th, 2012
Today I am packing up my house and getting ready to move at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. I find myself dealing with a situation that I must make the best of. I did not want this to happen but it is completely out of my control so I must grab hold of what is in my control.
I have had people say to me that I should not be publically talking about what has happened to me and although I have not made all the details public I feel I must if I am to stay true to what I profess talk about it and the consequences from actions both within and beyond ones control.
When things happen to us especially directly from the actions of others we are forced into making decisions on how to precede with our life’s. Often those who have put us in these situations have no idea of those consequences, what their actions have put into motion or how it will eventually affect them but the axioms of the world will always be true. We have a price to pay for all we do.
We must deal with all of our emotions and if I am to profess a worldview of truth I cannot back down when it is something personal and unpleasant to deal with. For me dealing with all things openly and honestly head on is the right and healthy attitude to have. We rarely get what we want but what we can do is to maintain our integrity, be truthful and face the situation head on. I have seen lies, fear and secrets destroy people even when they do not know it is destroying them as the truth will not care and always follow you wherever you go.
So play the cards you are dealt and then get a new hand.
I do believe that what is true will prevail, what is right will find its way and that people really do want to do the right thing but most just don’t know how to do it. I see people living for the moment which I endorse and going on their feelings but part of this must be long term thinking and the consequences of our actions.
I have been hurt recently and put in a position where I have lost so much but as I come through this I see the opportunity to start again while building on who I am. I like who I am, what I stand for and my worldview. I find that most who do the wrong things and who avoid dealing with reality do not like themselves and that they do these things to escape reality, what is right and what is true. This will never work as reality always catches up with you like it or not.
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
