… Old Dad talking with his Daughter who asked for advice about a long friendship gone sideways…
You come here for the experience. All four corners… the Good, the Bad, the Ugly and the Beautiful.. You chose to superficially remember very little about the script you planned for the show. Makes for a much better and engaging experience at the bottom rungs.
So, don’t look back. There is nothing there except your ego’s point of view while looking in the duality mirror. You are not separate from anything. But to fully experience requires the contrast that duality offers as the background and foreground for the set. So the Bad and the Ugly offer that contrast to the Good and Beautiful. This is how you make your way back home. Picking and choosing, choices in contrast, always now, always again and again until you mark the game as set and match ..
Omar Khayyám said it perfectly:
“The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.”
