A friend observed on FB: EVERYTHING IS OK IN THE END…..IF ITS NOT OK……THEN ITS NOT THE END!!!!
The words sent me thinking… is there really an end to anything? No, I think there is never an end. The universe expands and then shrinks… and the whole thing repeats interminably… 🙂 You see this happen everywhere. The day followed by the night, the crest and trough of waves… the other part of the observation is the word OK.
The crest as well as the trough are OK, day as well as night are OK… in fact, a smile and a frown both are OK! Why would I want everything to remain shining new all the time? Why would I want to shun or keep away from anything that is smudged and dirty?
Let me put this in simpler words. If there were only smiles all around and no frowns… if there were only sunshine all around and no clouds… if there was only light all around and no darkness… i shudder at such thoughts. I feel it is OK to have mountains, ditches, rivers, chasms, cliffs, darkness, dust, tornadoes, tsunamis, quakes, shakes, frights, heights… and whatever you can think of… it is only because of them that we are able to climb, swim, jump, run, escape, and smile when we think about our victories and triumphs.
No, don’t ever let anything end. Let the struggle survive.
