Sometimes the best told story…

is not what actually happened…even if it is a good story!

Sometimes the best told story is a fabrication of what was.

To continue telling the story over years perpetuates the illusion it is true. Yet what is true is the suffering that the story creates for others.

Bottomline: If you are embellishing a story, ask yourself what needs are being met for you. Especially if you have an inkling that over the years an illusion is being perpetuated.

Know what I mean, JellyBean?

Seeing through

Today as you interact pause quietly and look into the unique face in front of you. Imagine you are able to read this face like a book.

Reading the joys that have been experienced. Reading the hardships and suffering that have been lived through. Reading on the face the grace and serenity, the welcomings, the rejections, the wholeheartedness and the fears.

As you read the face watch for the evolution. It’s embedded there too.
