Catch up here – In The Opinion Of My 8th House… Stabbed In Back? No Problem!
So here’s an everyday example of how pain or bad energy can be channeled and transformed. Let’s say someone breaks your heart. What are you going to do? Wallow? Maybe. Then what are you going to do in a week, in a month or in a year? Still wallow? Maybe. What about five years? Still going to wallow?
Some people will still be lickin’ their wounds 5 years after the fact but if you’re Hank Williams, you’ll write a song! You’ll write, “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and people will sing it for the next 50 years. If you take his example and learn to convert your negative experience into something usable and valuable to yourself and others, you’re home free.
I am home free. I don’t care what happens. I value experience and I value all experience. I love my bliss as much as the next guy if the universe delivers me something else, so be it.
I played cards competitively when I was a kid. When you play cards you play the cards you’re dealt. That’s it! There is no whining. There is no do-over. You get what you get and you play your hand as skillfully as you can. You raise your play to an art if you can. You’re supposed to your best in this life… aren’t you?
So the cards in your hand or the ache in your heart or the knife in your back is all the same thing. It’s just energy and if you stab me then it’s my knife. If you break my heart, it’s my ache. And if you’re me you’re going to make art every single time. So that’s what I meant when I wrote this. That gal was badly hurt by that man. He cut her for sure but I know if she digs deep enough she will uncover and gain access to some nugget inside herself that will serve her for the rest her life. And what’s that mean?
It means this guy helped her out. Unintentionally but what difference does that make, when the royalties to your song roll in?
