Only One Way This Is Turning Out.

“So… look there are two ways this can turn out”

“Oh yeah, …..really? Only two ways.”

“Ok, well maybe I lied just a little.”

“How did you lie?”

“Well there is really only one way this can turn out.”

“That seems dire. How are you so sure.”

“Well it’s the only thing I know.”

“How can you be so sure?”

“Look I know you want there to be more, but it’s just the way things are.”

“Hmmmm.”

“What?”

“Well if there is only one way for things to turn out, then what is the point?”

“Are you kidding, there may only be one way for things to turn out. But there are a million ways to arrive at that one point. “

“So.”

“So….? Really? So? What do you mean….so?”

“I mean if it’s all going to turn out the same, then why does it matter the way we get to it.”

“Look, you have to figure that out for yourself. But believe me….the journey will be what matters, not the destination.”

“Hmmm. What am I meant to gain from a journey that leads me to the same point as everyone else?”

“Everything.”

“Everything, how so?”

“I have no more answers for you, I just know that if you do not take the journey you will regret it once you reach the point.”

“How do you know this?”

“I used to ask the same questions as you, I pushed aside the one inherent truth that came along with this journey. And I suffered a lot worrying about what would happen when I reached the point. And I thought that I could learn from everyone else along the way. I thought maybe they could give me the answers that I desired.”

“So what made you change your mind?”

“I stopped worrying about what I could not control. I began to notice everything around me. I began to see the possibility in every single thing I came across.”

“So are things different for you now? “

“No, there is still only one way things can turn out for me, just as there is only way things can turn out for you. The difference is, is that I can see EVERYTHING…..and although I know everything will be nothing one day. I am no longer afraid of meeting nothing. I am ready.”

“I do not understand what you are talking about?”

“I hope that one day you will?”

“Will you help me to learn?”

“No.”

“Why not?

“There is nothing I can teach you, there is no book that can guide you, there is no practice that will ease you, you already know the way. It is now time to find out how you want to spend your time getting to that point. Do you want to live it in fear of not knowing the answers? Or do you want to go about it some other way?”

“I guess, I do not really know.”

“That is ok, you are in the company of millions of others. Just do me a favor ok.”

“What’s that?”

“Do not get stuck there….. believe me comfort is not what you want. You will learn very little there, and you will feel a very small amount of the immense power that you have the ability to feel. You will find your answers when you face your largest fears. I have to go now.”

“Will I be ok?”

“That depends on what you think is ok, but either way there is only one way this is going to turn out…..so do you really want to spend it just being….OK?”
