If you are lucky and the time is right, you will remain alone. Completely alone, when no one will be there and you will have to look for hold in life and in yourself.
If you are lucky and the time is right, life will strike to crack you open like a nut and get to the core.
If you are lucky and the time is right, it will hurt. Hurt so much that you will feel like dying and then it will help you to be reborn from within.
If you are lucky, you will cry. And these tears won’t be able to be stopped by anything. And through them comes liberation and then true life.
If you are lucky, you will be vulnerable in front of other people. And you will not be able to hide it in any way. Then you will understand who is by your side and who is not.
If you’re lucky, you won’t find answers to certain questions. And then you will have to figure it out yourself.
If you are lucky, you will be disappointed by people, ideas, teachers and good magicians. And if you survive this, you will be able to see the real world.
If you are lucky and the time is right, you will have no one to ask for advice. Absolutely no one. And so it will be necessary to find your inner compass.
If you are lucky and the time is right, it will be unbearable. So unbearable that you will have to do something or just surrender and allow life to do something to you.
If you’re lucky, you’ll lose, you’ll betray yourself, you’ll be betrayed and almost crushed. And that „almost“ stands out as wrinkles of wisdom on your face. And you will keep this experience for the rest of your life.
If you are lucky, you will have no more money. And you will have to enter into a true relationship with the people you could have paid easily before.
If you are lucky, you will have a lot of money and you will reach the bottom of despair as the illusion of happiness fades.
If you are lucky, far from everyone will love you. And you will have to build an inner value system. And the desire to please everyone will finally let go of your throat.
If you’re lucky, someone beloved will turn their back on you. And you will realize the value of happiness.
If you’re lucky, you’ll clash with your beloved. And there will be two truths. His and yours. And you will feel the transparency between two separate universes that barely touch.
If you are lucky, you will be able to bear all this. And discover the art of transformation. Experience that inner alchemy that turns pain into beauty. From anger to humility. Fear into fulfillment. And from joy an inspiring example. That sweeps guilt and shame from the soul like the janitor sweeps old garbage. And turns wounds into doors.
If you’re lucky and the time is right….
