"Life's not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain."
“Every person has the power to make others happy.Some do it simply by entering a room --others by leaving the room.Some individuals leave trails of gloom;others, trails of joy.Some leave trails of hate and bitterness;others, trails of love and harmony.Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism;others trails of faith and optimism.Some leave trails of criticism and resignation;others trails of gratitude and hope.What kind of trails do you leave?”
- William Arthur Ward
So the Rapture was an un-event. 21 May 2011 happened and we're back to being the people that we are. Some have become faithful, others prayer-ful, whilst the rest of mankind stayed "as they were."
When it happens and it will, I bet it will come like a thief in the night. Probably worst than my Zombie Massacre nightmare. How we will all cope with it? Hell do I know?
I just know that at the moment I am feeling grateful for all that I have and don't have, and all that I am and I am not.
For I truly believe in what Buddha said a pretty long time ago:
"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without."
The entire frenzy has brought me back to the fundamental teachings and by some unfortunate circumstances, I always tend to forget. (damn shame on me!) For whatever it's worth, I have become a little more watchful.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.Watch your words, for they become actions.Watch your actions, for they become habits.Watch your habits, for they become character.Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
And at the moment, I live, I breathe, I think, I feel and I am learning to dance in the rain!
Enjoying every moment of it.
