I remember when the song The Dance
came out with its message that we can
avoid pain in life but then we miss
The Dance. I have seen this over & over
in my 60 years. I could have missed the
pain of Mr. Bubbles death if I had never
rescued him in the first place -- but I
would have missed 12 beautiful years
with him. That's just one example. You
surely have your examples.
Life is majestic. Incredible. The harmony of
how it all works is awesome. There is love
and pain and beauty. All this composes our
life every day. I love this quote by an
author whom I have read extensively and
I hope you love it too!
You must understand the whole of life,
not just one little part of it. That is why
you must read, that is why you must
look at the skies, that is why you must
sing and dance, and write poems and
suffer and understand, for all that is life.
~ Krishnamurti (1895–1986)
