The sharp edges of my personality will become smooth as I dwell within the Tao, the Way and ways of God. My mood swings will level out (being post-menopausal helps), the tendency to take and therefore react to things personally will subside, anxiety driven tirades against the “unfairness” of life exhibited by awaking to a dead car battery will diminish, and all will be well in my world.
The twisted knots of past hurts, unresolved issues, daily disappointments (in myself and in others), will loosen their grip on my personality. The Tao provides a way out, a way up, a way simply to choose the path of freedom from all of these things.
Am I ready for this? Oh yes.
“Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.” (Isaiah 40:4)
