Each Person Knows Only Their Own Pain And Renunciation

“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path”

... Paulo Coelho

I have often said there are as many paths as there are people. All those different paths and people fascinate me. Years ago, I began the practice of "reaching for understanding." I listened...truly listened, to everyone and everything, bugs, animals, plants, trees, people. What I gained from this practice has probably been the most beneficial thing I could have ever done in and for my life. I discovered it was like learning a million different languages. And then, one day, all those languages kind of just gelled, and I heard it, and saw it...the One Voice and Life in us all. There is no enemy...and never was.
