It helps to remain open. You never know what’s going to come along.
And when it comes, you must have left room for the miraculous, or you won’t recognize it.
It’s not all about love affairs, although this particular story was. It can be about jobs, or houses, or friendships, or new paths in our lives.
I think it helps to have a full life — and to appreciate what you have!
The practice of gratitude leaves openings; it allows you to see wonderful things when they happen along.
But being able to see isn’t enough. You have to be able to act, to dare.
Things don’t always work out well. But failure is simply information about better ways to try again. Hearts were meant to be risked (although let’s be clear, there’s nothing wrong with some calculations in those risks.)
But when they do work, the rewards are enormous. Love ensues. Joy does its happy dance. Peace gets its hopes raised. And people work together for both, which increases the odds tremendously, that someday there might be Peace. Both Peace or Magic require hard work and hopeful hearts.
