Number Five

It's all good -- the joy, the loss, the cruelty, the beauty.  It's all good -- the violent blow and tender touch, the avarice and selfless gift, sweet kindness and addiction.  These are the ways we learn, become.  These are the paths that teach us.

In one important way, all paths are equal, all deserving to be loved: they lead to what we came here to know.  It's all good -- the triumph and failure, the love discovered and the love ruined.  Because it's all life, a play we agreed to be in.  A story full of what we needed here.
