I am trying to see things in perspective

I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: “Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.

  1. “You have forgotten the One

    who doesn’t care about ownership,

    who doesn’t try to turn a profit

    from every human exchange.” —

    That spiritual guide (‘Umar) perceived that he (the ambassador) possessed (the capacity for receiving) guidance: he sowed the good seed in the good soil.

    Reason can only help him to reach the door of wakefulness.

  2. I think that stuff like this is complete bullsh**…either we acknowledge/accept that people can drive their destiny or we abdicate it to others/the universe/God/Jesus, whatever…if you really believe this type of thing, quit sending out stuff about making changes in your life, being empowered, etc…how is this helpful?
