A dear friend just confided in me that someone they love is struggling with some very similar things to what I was going through when we parted ways almost a decade ago. Except this time, they can't just walk away from the problem, they have a very vested interest in the situation.
Suddenly I understand why I have to be a part of their life right now, and why they have expressed so much guilt about having left all those years ago. It is all starting to make sense... and I hate it.
I hate it because it isn't fair (THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT! IT'S NOT FAIR!!). I hate that once again I have to sit around and watch someone I love struggle and be in pain while I do nothing (nothing useful anyway).
And yet even as I type this I am seeing the lessons that we both have to learn here. And how even though we aren't learning them the way we were intended to, we are once again having to learn them together.
I need to learn that the Universe gives me what I need, no more, no less. If I'm not being given the things I want, there is good reason for it. I need to learn that my Love is not nothing. Like all of my other emotions it is a powerful force of nature that can change the world around me to meet my deepest desires. I have to learn, that my desires aren't always the best thing for everyone else.Some times, the Universe has bigger and better plans...
So tell me Great and Powerful Universe, what do you have planned for me today?
