One Size Does Not Fit All

“Never give up” is a great motto of the Dalai Lama,
and it’s something to live by…
until the time is right to give up the struggle
and let Spirit take over.
 
Some people make plans
and boldly pursue their dreams;
others prefer to take life as it comes.
Either way will gain you spiritual growth.
 
Some forgive quickly.
Others take their time and work up to it.
There is no one right way,
only what’s right for each one of us.
 
Someone may try to convince you
that you have to follow one particular path, prophet or teacher.
Don’t you believe it.
Unless you do, and then by all means,
take that path and follow that prophet.
 
You can be convinced that there’s only one way,
and only one True path.
That doesn’t stop me from believing
that there are many paths….
but only One Truth.
