Seeds of Opportunities

There is no such thing as failure,
bad marriages, wrong jobs, nor are
there stupid people, impossible
families, or hopeless situations.

Ha! you say, You do not know my spouse,
family, job!

Yes, I do because I have been in
failed relationships, jobs I hated,
with people who bored me, situations
that drove me to despair.

After years of enduring, I finally
learned that in every person, in every
situation, there lies seeds of opportunities
to learn, to grow, to become.

It is my lack of compassion that makes
me see a person’s negative behavior,
rather than his seed of pure love
energy within, waiting to blossom.

It is I who needs to change my perspective
when I feel frustrated with a situation,
instead of asking, what can I learn here?
What has brought this into my life?
And once I have grasped the seeds of
opportunity, what must I do to move on
to the next lesson?

Life is a school. We can choose to
excel, to fail, or to merely skim by.
The lessons will keep coming again
and again until we finally learn what we
need to know. Look for your seeds of
opportunity and carefully nurture them.
They are a gift from the Divine,
ours for the choosing.
