Atomic Bombshell


Illuminated

June 13th, 2006

MetamorphosisMany areas of my life are in need of greater illumination, and so a common frustration for me is accepting that I can only be where I’m at… I’ll be searching for answers about one thing only to be provided with other insights into things that appear to be completely unrelated.

We can’t force personal progress or even determine its direction. Instead, we find ourselves passing out of the darkness only by actively searching for areas where a fresh light is shining. Life has taught me to seek growth wherever it can be found, not just in the places I’d like to see it most.

    Well, from what I know of you, you will find the correct path. Luck to you, and I will continue to send you stuff that I think is funny. If if gets a grin, well… it worked!

    There is an old buddhist story which may apply here:
    A young man once went to a buddhist monk in search of enlightenment. Upon arriving at the monk’s place the young man asked, “Please sir, how may I become enlightened?”

    The buddhist monk looked at him and answered, “Five years. In five years time you will be enlightened.”
    “What?! Five years! I don’t have time to spend the next five years to become enlightened! Okay, what if I work twice as hard as your other pupils, then how long will it take me to be enlightened?”

    “Ten years,” replies the monk.

    “What?!” replied the young man. “Okay, what it I work day and night to become enlightened. How long will it take me then?”
    “Twenty years,” replied the monk.

    The young man became frustrated. “Okay, so what if I devote every fiber in my being to becoming enlightened. I mean from this moment on, how long will it take then?”
    “It will take the rest of your life,” said the monk. “But then you may still never reach enlightenment.”

    Perhaps this is what is it: process. Perhaps our personal wills (fears and desires, etc.) get in the way of something marvelous happening. Perhaps where you are right now is perfection even if you do not see it, or even feel it. Maybe in the pain there is also reason for smiles. And in fear or other emotions there is still moments for joy.

    And in the darkness, if you smile inside you may still find there is light.

    Have a very blessed day.
