Things do not always go according to Plan
April 10, 2017
Hello,

This heading - things do not always go according to plan – is the second of David Ricoh’s Five Things We Cannot Change. I think we can all agree that this is absolutely true. But why exactly?

I ask because it is not just that the plans we make will always be imperfect and partial and involve heroic assumptions about the future which are bound to be wrong. It is more than that. It is that uncertainty is an essential part of the life we lead and that our resilience in the face of the plans we make which don’t work out is how we learn and grow and explore.



THE ILLUSION OF FREEDOM
by Sophia Yasmeen

    It is very interesting the illusion of freedom. Freedom does exist but it's illusion is powerful. Throughout history there has always been devotion to God. The soul has sinned so it becomes devoted to its various concepts of God. From something as divine as God, right down the line to money or status, people believed in their guru and felt he must be free and therefore I must follow him.

    Yet the very act of being impressed by another who is impressive means their form does not enable one’s own angelic, perfect form to embrace me. So my own angelic form is shuffled back in a queue behind husbands, wives , children , grand children , houses, money and gurus. Right at the back is the freedom of my own inner form of a perfect angel. The illusion that we can arrive at a place of oneness with perfect feelings by using another form cannot happen. Perfection just gets shuffled back.

    So, if you've ever had a dream of an angel coming to you it was just yourself telling your other self about your true self. It is you. It came to show you your form. Where there is no impression there can be no depression.

Sophia is a beautiful writer and I am happily sharing her work in my Feelbetter Newsletter.

best wishes
Andrew
