“Have you ever felt like you were lost?
That you didn’t know where you were going or where you came from?
Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I?
What should I remember?
What is my deepest wish from the bottom of my heart?”
I know you must have a wish like that, because we all do.
I learned that we really have to believe in miracles.
All you have to do is take that leap.
If you stop resisting and surrender,
You’ll see that even the most painful thing in life is a gift.
Instead of thinking, “How can I get rid of this burden?”
Ask yourself, “In what way is this a gift?”
The steps you take to escape the pain can bring you to the edge.
And if you cross over that edge, you can never go back to sleep.”

P.S. The picture today is a close up shot of a monkey puzzle tree’s bark. If you enlarge and zoom into the centre of the eye, you might be able to spot two tiny figures, a male and female greeting each other with arms raised. Or is that just my vivid imagination?
