When we find ourselves in the same situations over and over again, when we realize we are attracting the same type of people or circumstance like a record that’s hit a scratch and just keeps repeating the same few words,what’s really happening is; we’re missing an important lesson in life. And sadly, the lesson is about us, not the other people, circumstances or situation.
The song I’ve chosen for today is rather bleak, but I love the rhythm and her voice is sweet and melodic. Plus, she describes how we all feel from time to time: “you can’t jump the tracks, we’re like cars on a cable, life’s like an hourglass glued to the table…there’s a light at both ends of the tunnel we’re in…cause we’re just as far in as we’ll ever be out…” Now I don’t believe any of this is true, yet, we’ve all felt this way at some point in our lives. and the point is, there’s a lesson we need to learn from mistakes and from less than perfect personality traits, our own personality traits.
What many people don’t know or at least forget is, once you start figuring out the lesson, once you start seeing what you need to change about yourself, then you apply the lesson in new and different situations. I’m not saying we shouldn’t seek forgiveness from those we’ve offended, we absolutely must. But so many of us stop there. To really apply the lesson and change ourselves and our lives, we have to take the lessons and the change in ourselves and begin using the new us in new situations and with new people. When you successfully apply the changes in yourself to new people and circumstances, then you have truly learned and are growing mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
While enjoying this beautiful song, hear her words of wisdom, when you’re in the dark night of the soul, Just Breathe.
