everything that can be, is
All things that can exist, do — at least in the realm of the mind.
We can cast out mind’s eye far into our futures or deep into our past.
The crazy thing, though, is that we can change what we see at any moment.
We can look back and say “I’m a f^ckup, and I’ve always been a f^ckup, and I always will be.”
Or we can look back and say, “Damn, that was f^cked up, but I understand why it happened. I won’t let it happen again.”
This is where the ancient mythologies of mercy, forgiveness, and renewal come into play.

Marcus Aurelius once wrote:
“Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life. Now, take what’s left and live it properly. What doesn’t transmit light creates its own darkness.”
The Christ myth demonstrates something similar, but it externalizes the principle:
“God has wiped your slate clean — you don’t have to be what you were.”
Whichever route we take — external or internal — we can arrive at the same summit.
When we change how we perceive our past, we shift our present perspective and transform our future potential.

Those who master others are strong; those who master themselves have true power.
Those who know they have enough are truly wealthy.
Those who persist will reach their goal.
