The Deeper Mark

IMG_2542 (1)

“Way more people have tried to help me, than have harmed me, the harm just seems to leave the deeper mark…” ~Daniel, ‘Rectify’

Sometimes the bigger epiphany is not how we have been wronged but how we have been “righted”. We get to choose the focus.

I believe the same is true of love. And love is so generous and expansive. It washes over like a wave, full of force and grace, clearing, while also depositing a gift. Have you been loved? Well then, that is the weight we must carry in our mind, heart, life.

May we choose to let love ‘leave the deeper mark’.

  1. Too many are “righted” and do not take it into account. They’d rather dwell on the wrongs. Too bad. They are missing the joy of living life to it’s fullest.
    I have even known people who take rights and make wrongs of them.
    How miserable their lives must be!!!
    I wonder sometimes, what wrongs could possibly have happened in their lives that made them so unhappy that they could not even try to overcome their misery. I guess it becomes a pattern in their spirit, a way of life.
    They have no individuality. They envy other’s joy, but can’t find their own, sort of like “keeping up with the Joneses”…. If I have something nice, they have to have one just like it. But it isn’t satisfactory to them.
    That’s a sad life.
