November 29--Eternal Good

Don't worry about losing. If it is right, it happens--the main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.  --John Steinbeck

    Huh? This sounds to me like relax and trust the process. I know that hurrying and/or trying to force things to happen does not help, and it only serves to stress me out. 
    Nothing good gets away... let's run with that. Yes, people, situations, places and experiences pass through our lives, but I believe ultimately that we hold the memories and goodness from each forever. Love is eternal. Everything that shapes us stays with us, making it all the more important to stay focused on the good, forgive as needed, and find the best in each person, situation, place and experience.   
    I think of nature. We are in the season of trees losing their leaves. It's right, it cannot be hurried. It is all good and necessary for the trees, to enable them to move through the winter and return their good to us in the spring. It is a beautiful process! Nature is an excellent example of perfect timing and infinite good. 
    Remaining calm,
Fall foliage in central Pennsylvania, 
where I grew up.
