When one door closes...

When one door closes...another door opens?
Or could it be that when we are single mindedly pursuing one particular door and ignoring the other doors which are more proper for us at that stage, the door we are heading towards closes on our face? We can cry forever at the door or wait forever for it to open, or we could just look around at the other door that was always there, but only now was brought into focus.

I have been thinking...we should be so thankful that there is a power greater than the power of our Focus, that closes the doors we are focussed on. And we should be so thankful to all the doors that close on us. The Negative is just a pricking nudge towards the positive. If we could always look around and choose the best door against our nature to focus on one and become content with it(often beyond it's duration of usefulness), then probably we might never have needed closed doors.
Each person with his/her own particular nature needs his/her own miseries for his/her own good. Knowing this as true is essential sometimes, so we can force ourselves to look around, as sometimes we just can't look away, from our favourite door...

It is just so confusing... Whether to accept whatever comes our way, or leaves us behind... And make an endeavor to break that door...!!

I guess our instinct lets us know when to choose, which path to choose

Jerly said...

That's exactly the point..we wouldn't be confused if we didnt often try to turn a deaf ear to our instincts. We wouldn't need closed doors if we listened to our instincts and took the right path..What reminded me of this post is the thought I read recently-"We often meet destiny on the road we take to avoid it..."

The universe is endless, and so the life. To know the life/ universe, you've to move ahead, if one door ends up, another hundreds of doors come across you. That's true! By raising such simple metaphor you've tried to suggest something that is so deep and metaphysical. Thanks! It's heart or ones instinct always being a guide to figure you out- where to move now, stay or seek another door. Actually- dualism is a core behavior of this life, or of globe. Man by nature- wants to remain in his/her comfort zone. And, I think, that's dangerous, if not, this is not good for those who are willing to know/ experience more. After all, a spiritual journey, too is a challenge. A ship is safe at its backyard/ seacoast, but it's not meant to made for this! Thanks Jerly having raising question that has depth!

It is said that if u love someone set them free; if they are yours they will come back to u.

I feel you should set yourself free too from relationships that eat at ur peace and see in time if you are still drawn to that old door.
