Thwarted plans are those that get put off unexpectedly. Lots of things we plan in our lives don't go as we planned. We find ourselves getting divorces after 30 years, our health declines, we lose our jobs, or we lose a loved one. How do you deal with this? Do you get angry, cry, become bitter, or depressed? The best earthly ideas or plans can go awry. I want to walk in the light all of the time. I crave it. I think it's partly because of my physical weaknesses. In the light, I feel strong and happy. When I'm in the light, I focus outward and not inward.
What happens in black holes? No light can escape and they collapse inward. I think this analogy can also parallel our souls. If we constantly focus inward on ours lives and our problems, we become "black holes." We ourselves become devoid of any light.
Now, a let's connect the lesson about space with Winnie the Pooh. You know those people who seem always forlorn. I call them Eeyores. Eeyore is a gift from A. A. Milne and so relatable to not only children, but also adults. They have their good points (Insightful, Observant, Wise, Pretty, Loyal) and bad points (Negative, Dismal, Pessimistic, Sarcastic, Depressed, Gloomy, Cynical.) They can wear you out mentally and emotionally. And let's face it, we are all an Eeyore at one time or another. The problem lies with being perpetually in the "black hole" of Eeyoredom.
You need a change. The change needs to be your perspective, paradigm shift. The amazing thing is only you can control your attitude. It is truly a choice to "choose happy." All things created large and small in the universe have parallels, similarities, and connections. I'm thunderstruck when I get these aha moments. It's astonishing when our small minds try to fathom creation, nebulas, and life. The main point is that we do try. It's not easy when you get the shaft instead of the gold mine in life. Trying to stay in the light is an arduous task for humans, but when we do great blessings spill from each of us.
