Million Satisfactory Resolutions
My human certainly isn’t going to change the name of our blog since she’s aware of the mess it’s caused some others who’ve done so. She had a purpose besides fun and escape when we became residents in SL, began blogging and named this blog Million Happy Endings. Recently she read this quote by way of Pinterest:
“There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
and a very happy start.” —Shel Silverstein

We don’t always get to choose our starts. We can learn from happiness but most of our growth seems to come from challenges and finding solutions, discovering higher levels of truth, learning to make better choices and such. Finding resolution and closure.

Higher Awareness and Growth can be quite painful
It’s often been said that you can’t solve a problem at the level it was created. When I reach a higher level of clarity and truth, of course I appreciate it. But it takes a lot of work to get focused on the facts of what was, what was incorrect and then to choose a better way without getting freaked out with who or what to blame. Life can appear to be very unfair and I’m one of those overly ambitious souls who loaded this lifetime with extreme challenges and apparent unfairness.
Most of my fellow humans struggle with this too. Crying over spilled milk, repining, grieving over losses, betrayal, manipulations and being lied to and cheated by the institutions we’ve given power and resources to in order for all of humanity to be served. Each one of us has different skill levels at moving through this so we can get to the part where we have the equanimity to take effective action and move on. Some never make that journey in this lifetime.
It can be quite shocking to learn that much of what you’ve been taught is wrong as the illusions fall away. Not a journey for the faint of heart.
In the rush and noise of the world, I need to remember to pause and acknowledge the little healings, clearings and the satisfactory resolutions that are for right now.
