I can’t say all, but I can say behind MOST ugly there is indeed something beautiful just waiting to be found.
I can’t say all, but I can say behind MOST pain there is indeed a relief that can be discovered.
I can’t say all, but I can say behind MOST sadness there is indeed a joy waiting to be revealed.
Life is not like a box of chocolates, it’s like an onion.
As soon as you peel back one layer, wiping the sweat from your brow having made it through to the other side of ugly ~ voila, there right before your eyes is another layer in need of the same peeling away.
Layers of ugly, pain, sadness, discouragement, loneliness, sickness, grief and more are what we peel through in life. That’s the truth.
But inspite of the tears that life’s onion brings the layers have purpose in regard to everything.
Each layer improves your ability to see the world and soak in its beauty. Each layer allows you to know more deeply the amazing sensations of happiness and to taste a true sense of joy. Each tearful peel allows you to convert hopelessness into beautiful hope … if you only let them.
Remembering that each onion also has a sweet beautiful center is crucial. Life is the same.
The quest is to peel back the layers and rest in the center. And each of you will at the end of your journey of life as human, for eventually that is all that is left. The sweet beautiful center.
Oh precious human, know that something beautiful awaits you everyday. Find it, search for it as for hidden treasurer.
As you feel the burning and stinging of life’s layered lessons that seem never ending remember they are ending.
As a matter of fact they end too soon.
With anticipation go ahead and peel each layer away. But take your time and soak it all in, really feel all the sensations of each and every day. For before you know it life as human will be completely peeled away.
