Life is No Deal

We cut deals in life, thinking
that is what life is all about, and
our life amounts to the deals we cut.
We cut deals in life, hoping
the deals we cut help us win, and
somehow give us more
than we already have.
We cut deals in life, believing
we can trade what we have
for what we want, and at times,
we try to trade one thing we don’t have
for yet another thing we don’t have.
We cut deals in life, believing
the world is against us, and
that we must play our hand carefully, or
otherwise we end up losing.
Life is no deal to be cut, rather
it is a gift to be appreciated, and
simply lived in truth and love.

  1. This is a very important subject. I think only a teacher can take us beyond all the dealing as unfortunately it is ingrained into our way of being.
