Reena’s Exploration Challenge #105 – PROMPT: “Only if I knew it then” – Wistfulness.
Oh those “only if” or “if only’s” that at one time held me down in such unnecessary melancholy. Through the many seasons of growing I have come to realize that the wisdom I know today would have been futile for me to know back then. I was not spiritually enlightened enough to receive it. I had to go through those years of the foolishness of “spiritual bankruptcy” in order to grow into the wisdom of “spiritual riches.”
Today I have learned not to dwell in the sad longing of “what ifs” and instead use the lessons learned through hindsight that become the wisdom of foresight. By doing this I have broken the cycle of insanity’s “doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result” to a sane mind that makes new and different choices bringing peace of mind.
a beginning from
feeling the way through darkness
to guidance by Light
