Beauty of living

I meant to for a long time , but never got around to posting this wonderful quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe :

"Until one is committed
there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,
always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative
there is one elementary truth,
the ignorance of which kills countless ideas
and splendid plans:
That the moment one definitely commits oneself,
then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
that would otherwise never have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision,
raising in ones favor all manner
of unforeseen incidents and meetings
and material assistance,
which no wo/man could have dreamt would have come
her/his way".

I cannot agree more to these words! It is the idea of our Divine Creator that we chose what we want and commit ourselves , not matter how difficult, how strange or unexpected things are . We are expected to try the unexpected so that we give Him opportunity to show His love for us. I call it FAITH, others call it providence, universe... Whatever the name is, it is the same thing. The one and only thing that brings us closer to our Creator and allows us to discover who we really are.
