Some thoughts about life's inner meanings

on the first day of summer...
it's of course just slightly  a month after I celebrated one of my birthdays...when the sun came up later today, I could feel optimism reverberating in the air, and washed away by the rain brought by this year's earlier rainy season are bits and pieces of negativity that unwitttingly came my way...whether brought by some uncontrolled circumstances that made me react in certain ways or that little monster we call 'ego'...ah, life is a process of continuous learning, while at that moment when something bad happens, the most convenient way to avoid responsibility is merely to find fault at others, but as we mature, we start to look inwards....by doing so, we start to feel regret or laugh at those silly mistakes that we have made or might have inflicted on others whether in our actions or words, out of our own ignorance....
in restrospect, as soon as the same words and actions come back to us in the form of what others call 'karma', we are forced to change our perspectives and resolve to apply wisdom in the choices that we make....in my humble opinion, when this realization comes we become happier people, the thought becomes truly liberating - and life moves on...
the catchword is 'change'... for the better.
our sufferings do help polish the rough edges of our inner selves and by providence, they lead us to believe in a higher Being that continuously guides and protects us whenever we need such guidance and protection..
help from a higher source is always available when we resolve to gear our attachments towards noble goals...in the process, detachment from 'ego' becomes more of a natural propensity, as a result...what do we gain from this? we become more truthful, kind and merciful, and eventually becoming more understanding and tolerant of others who may be going through the difficult stages of self-discovery...hmmm, when we start to learn, we also start to feel there's much more to learn :-)
