If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you chose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.
Absolutely not. I don’t want to know what happens, or when I die, because it would just drive me crazy my whole life. I knew a few days ago that my Horse was going to be put down, because he could not walk, was 25 and had multiple tumors, and I felt as if I was counting down the hours that I had left with him. I feel that if I knew every little detail in my life, it would be the same. I would be counting down the hours, and worry about how much time I have left. There would be no purpose for me to live it, or I would be constantly trying to change it. I also would not want to be reminded of the past. I wouldn’t want to read over those chapters of my life again in which I do not want to repeat. There are many images and feelings I bury deep and do not wish to uncover ever again. I feel that opening that book would only bring a lot of pain. Don’t misunderstand, there are PLENTY of times where I am struggling and I just wish I knew the outcome of something before it actually happened, but honestly, sometimes, I just think its better to NOT know, and figure it out as you go.
Tell me now dear friend, would YOU open that book?
