“Be like the gods and laugh at yourselves!”
I remember reading this or something like it years ago and not quite understanding the full meaning of the quote. I kind of got that it meant not to take life so seriously, but a 20 year old always takes her/himself seriously. Twenty year olds are at a juncture in their journey where everything is done in serious earnest. Now that I am older I take every opportunity to laugh at myself: my need to be right; the need to be perfect; any perceived indignation; and my judgment of others.
However what else do I need to learn? My friend Eve and I were having lunch musing over what the Goddess from all the ancient cultures would have to say about some of the things we worry ourselves with during the course of a day and what is really important about life. Here’s a part of our dream conversation with the Ancients.
Shirlyn: “Will I ever find the love of my life?”
Goddesses: “A more fitting question is will your love ever be able to catch up with you! Go live a full life and love will always find you!”
