“The truth is that you have no control. You cannot control life. Your control is only resistance, and your resistance comes from a precluded idea or two. Nothing has to be the way you thought it had to be. Your thoughts are wisps.
When you can accept that your calculations may have been miscalculations, you will be on a new footing. You will leave the old sticky past. You will arise to great before-unimagined heights because you will have let go of the ballast you held on to.
You have been a boat moored to shore. You paddled and paddled, and wondered why you couldn’t just leave shore. Now is the time to unmoor the boat. Cast off. You cannot stay at the safety of shore and ride the waves of the ocean at the same time. Is that not what you have been attempting to do? Have you not hobbled yourself with old ideas you fashioned?”
Gloria Wendroff, in “Heavenletters”
