LIE IS THE VESTIBULE OF ANOTHE LIE, NOT OF THE PARADISE
An emperor in the Far East was growing old and knew it was time to choose his successor. Instead of choosing one of his assistants or his children, he decided something different. He called young people in the kingdom together one day. He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next emperor. I have decided to choose one of you."
The kids were shocked! But the emperor continued. "I am going to give each one of you a seed today. One very special seed. I want you to plant the seed, water it and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from this one seed. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next emperor!"
One boy named Ling was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly told his mother the story. She helped him get a pot and planting soil, and he planted the seed and watered it carefully. Every day he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other youths began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.
Ling kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew. Three weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks went by. Still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants but Ling didn't have a plant, and he felt like a failure. Six months went by-still nothing in Ling's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed.
Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing. Ling didn't say anything to his friends, however he just kept waiting for his seed to grow.
A year finally went by and all the youths of the kingdom brought their plants to the emperor for inspection. Ling told his mother that he wasn't going to take an empty pot. But honest about what happened, Ling felt sick to his stomach, but he knew his mother was right when she convinced him to show the result in the emperor. He took his empty pot to the palace. When Ling arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other youths. They were beautiful in all shapes and sizes. Ling put his empty pot on the floor and many of the other kinds laughed at him.
What is there to not smile about?

At least from my perspective...
When things don’t work out how I hoped, I do my best to remind myself of this. There’s so much in my life I have to be grateful for. And although I may not know the reasons WHY things didn’t work out as I’d hoped, I am getting better at TRUSTING that they didn’t work out bc there is something equal or better coming my way.
I’m reminding myself that I don’t know the whole story or see the entire picture. Letting go, SURRENDERING, while continuing to be the best version of myself that I can is all I can control 💗
Thank you Universe, for all that has happened, is happening, and will be happening soon. I am reminding myself to be grateful for all of it.
