I am beginning to learn to be more adventuresome. Necessity creates strength. I need to be more proactive; taking more responsibility in my path. This isn’t to say that faith and detachment aren’t important; they are. What it does mean is that doing your part expedites things. A woman once wanted to win the lottery. ‘God’, she asked, ‘please let me win the lottery’. Weeks went by, nothing happened. Finally, after she couldn’t wait any longer, the woman tried again. ‘God’, she said, ‘it is said those who ask are given. I asked to win the lottery and I didn’t, why’. The Heavens opened up and a voice boomed: ‘In order to win the lottery, you have to buy the ticket’.
