The Grand Lesson of the Cosmic Giggle

As we are approaching the end of the year, I thought I’d write down my greatest lesson of 2020 on the path to self-discovery and understanding:  

  1. The most important things in life cannot be taught, one must learn these lessons on their own.
  2. Most people seeking the answers to the important things in life will seek out teachers despite this.
  3. Most people will spend a lot of money and time doing this.
  4. Time is required, but not much money is required. The money will be spent anyway.
  5. It’s okay to spend the money. Losing it in this quest is part of the process.
  6. You will absolutely lose your mind several times in the quest.
  7. Losing your mind is part of the process.
  8. When you regain your mind, it will be in a better state than when you lost it.
  9. Each time you go through the process of losing your mind and regaining it, it gets a little better.
  10. When you arrive at your answers, you’ll understand how it was necessary to go through all of the things that were not necessary.
  11. You cannot teach this to anyone, everyone must walk this path alone. No amount of intellectual understanding will prepare one for true, united understanding of the heart, mind and soul.
  12. Laughter is the best way to deal with this knowledge.
