Wheel of Fortune - Love-Go-Round



Yesterday I saw this quote by Marianne Williamson.

" Until seeing someone's darkness, you don't really know who they are. Until forgiving someone's darkness, you don't really know what love is." - Marianne Williamson

This description parallels the Wheel of Fortune, in that we never know what we are going to get, when it comes to life, or love. It is in acceptance where love lies. I am not referring to accepting injustice. But knowing what we can and cannot accept or change, and knowing the difference. Loving means acceptance of the good, bad and the ugly. Acceptance, and forgiveness with detachment does not exclude love, but includes and precisely defines love, in a way that is healthy for all concerned, and brings peace if we make an effort to change what we can. The only person we can truly change is ourselves.

Awww thank you so much Las Magas. This card resonates with me today, as I have to accept a particular situation that hurt me, but no point in hanging on to the hurt and not forgiving. Not a luxury I can afford any more.
Always when one door closes another opens!

Thank you dear friend! <3

So true my friend. Pain and sadness seemed to dominate my life once and acceptance and forgiving was what has rescued me from even a worse situation
And I know you understand this so well. :)
Hugs
