Feb. 14, 2018 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Love, the magician, knows this little trick whereby two people walk in different directions yet always remain side by side.
 — Hugh Prather

Destiny has its own course in each of our lives. And our movements with others who are special will thankfully be parallel at times. However, our paths will sharply intersect now and then and we’ll even find ourselves at painful cross-purposes on occasion. But if the love we’re expressing is part of God’s plan for us and not just to satisfy the selfish ego, we’ll not stray from one another’s dream, though we may depart for brief periods of new growth.

We must fulfill our personal desires, vocationally and recreationally, if we are to successfully offer up our special talents for the goodness of humankind. And most assuredly that’s why we’re here – in this place – at this time – with these particular people.

Others cannot pull us from our true calling. If the love between us is real, it will free us and bless our direction – trusting our hearts will not be torn asunder.

The butterfly silently returns when the winds blow free.
