Knowledge is Power

Consider this, my dear friends: Each of our lives is like a play.

We, by default, have to take the main role - but we have the freedom to play this role however we want. We can write our own scenes and write our own dialogue.

The other roles in this play are split between major and minor characters. Each of these is further split between two groups - Characters we choose and characters that are chosen for us.

For a moment I will leave this metaphorical play and talk about knowledge. There are things I know and there are things I know. The latter group is comprised of intangibles, things that don't make sense - but knowledge of them exists nonetheless.

Trivial examples of them are knowledge of when my name is going to be read out seconds before it happens, knowledge of casino roulette numbers seconds before they spin in, knowledge of when my girlfriend is gonna call me.

Now - returning to the play analogy - I have discovered who one of the major characters in my life story is.

For 26 and a half years I did not know this person - even though she is to become the greatest and most significant character in my owb play of my life story.

I used to wonder - how would I recognise her when I met her? How would I know that it was HER and not nobody else?

I supposed there was no answer.

But I was wrong.

Well since dating this girl I have been quietly confident that she is the one. And it has afforded me a certain arrogant smugness - which does makes things a lot more interesting. Even though I was confident enough to tell my mum and dad that this was a the girl I might marry my feelings were only ever about 99.8% certain.

Anyway, three days ago something changed - some new crazy feeling I get when I look at her. I don't see her as who she is anymore - I see her as who she is going to be. Being with her is the most natural thing in the world. I can truly say that although I have no immediate plans to marry her I now have absolutely confident that I will.

There is no logic or reasoning to it.

But it feels so perfectly right.

I get this amazing feeling when I am with her that I am outside of my body and looking in - and I am watching this PLAY of my life - And I am watching myself with her and it all adds up - it all makes sense.

And this is how I know.

Because I detach myself from me and look in to my life.

And what I see is magic.

So for you dear reader I feel presumptuous enough to offer advice.

How do you know if he/she is the one?

You just do.

Not through deduction, attraction, logic, happiness or any of that shit. Don't write a list. Don't think about it.

If you can look at your life like you are the central character and you can see him/or her as playing opposite you - then that it is all you need.

How will you find them?

Open your eyes. Open your heart. Learn the lessons you need to learn. Let the past stay where it belongs.

Peace and Love

"how will/did I know?"

I wasn't looking. Isn't that always the case? "You wouldn't have been looking for her/him had you not already found her/him"?

it's not luck, it's not logic either. just silent communion, I guess.

peace is the word.

This is absolutely lovely. I wrote an article about "The One" some months ago. I myself then was fervently deliriously looking for D One. However, no matter how logical the answers that I acquired, it all boils down to one thing: The One will come when it is meant, with no warning, with no caution.

I have the found The One in the oddest place possible. I know he is The One after quite sometime. It just felt right.

Cheers to you! Keep writing. Your blogs are definitely lovely!

And you are absolutely right - when you meet The One, you just know.

Ideas are plants and people are machines - the best people are plant makers.

Sort of.
