A research study was recently made about the most frequently used phrases in movies. Many films were studied in order to find the language that’s most used. The phrase that won was “Let’s get out of here!”
People seem to be continually running away from something “horrible” and running toward something “fantastic”. We see it with bumper stickers like “I’d rather be golfing” , “I’d rather be playing tennis”, etc…anywhere but where we are. Have you ever seen a bumper sticker that said, “I’d rather be exactly where I am?”
We’re always trying to get from here to there, but when we get there, it becomes here. That’s the problem…so then we have another here to get to another there.
Helen Keller once said, “Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn whatever state I may be in, therein to be content”.
It’s a life-long process to become patient and make peace with the truth that every person is just where he or she needs to be. When our central aim is to find the peace within, we discover how everything comes to us. We discover that every person, place, and event in our lives is perfectly designed to teach us something we need to learn to get free.
