You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey

You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey.

 

—Abraham

——

Every time I get a short quote from Abraham I am struck by how profound they can be in very few words.  This is another example.

At first reading, I thought, “OK.  I’ll buy that.”  But, then I started to actually think about it a little (probably going through my mental Rolodex, looking for an exception to this rule – I do not accept everything I’m told at face value, no matter WHO says it).  And the more I thought about it, the more I came to agree with the statement.  And the more I came to appreciate its value.

They’re talking about how we live our lives, and about how we end them.  If we go through life focused on the negative, using every opportunity to point out the ugly and the unfortunate and the unjust things in this world (all of which are personal judgements, by the way), we’re going to end our lives unhappy, unhealthy, and full of resentment and fear.

On the other hand, what will the ends of our lives be like if we make it a point to smell the roses along the way?

Abraham says that we can’t get it wrong while we’re in the physical realm, and that we’ll never get it done, and when we die, we simply close our eyes here and open them in the non-physical, where we are again fully connected to Source (or the Universe, or God, or whatever you’d like).

People who’ve apparently been there and come back describe it as a place of pure love, etc., so you’ll get your happy ending eventually, I guess.  But, who wants to wait that long?  And are you willing to take that chance?  What if you close your eyes and it’s over?

You’ll have to excuse me, now.  I’m going to look for some roses.
