What you think the cause is usually is not the cause. Life is full of mystery and we would not have it any other way. Mystery makes life fun and exciting. Consider for a minute how your life would be if you knew everything that was going to happen and when.
We will call it a flash forward. You could see all the challenges you would face in this lifetime all the way down to the detail of who is with you, how you met, and how long you have known each other. You would know when you die and how, as well as the same for everyone in your life. How would your life be different?
I am sure many of you are saying, “Kool” I would love to know everything in advance. But just think about it…. Have you ever gotten a gift that you knew what it was in advance without the other person knowing that you knew? How did you act? Was this fun?
Mystery is a gift that you have given yourself! It adds intrigue and gives you something to look forward to. It is a reason to go on with your life, because you have Hope that things will be getting better.
If you knew that life was not going to get better would you end it? Without the mystery, life is lacking a vital aspect of humanity. Knowing that you can handle whatever life offers up is a great feeling and with the added bonus of mystery it is even better.
The feeling of Joy that comes from taking a risk and experiencing the consequences are not to be underestimated. Even if you fall flat on your face, you get up and try again. No harm no foul. Say for instance that your risk leads to death. Then you have gained a valuable experience that would have otherwise been lost. (yes, it is true – Life never ends, only experiences do).
Are you ready for the next great experience coming your way? What is your attitude about it? Your expectations set the tone for the experience, even if you have done it a thousand times, no especially if you have done it a thousand times! Remember to stay open to new experiences, embrace the ones that present themselves, and look for the mystery & miracles that abide in every moment.
