Four Things That Cannot Returned To You
By OC Tross
1. The Spoken Word - The spoken word is powerful; it can make, break, compel, destroy, manifest, cause war, mend, heal, kill, love and make hate strive into envy. Whenever we speak, our words are transmitted into either concrete or abstract concepts and if we say the wrong words that may offend others there is no possible way we can return those words back to us. Even if apologize for statements we made the deed is already done. The spoken word is often taken for granted because people feel that within a free society one should be able to freely express their thoughts and opinions without any form of penalty. However, if we are to openly condemn one group of people over another there will be consequences that may affect us for the rest of our lives. We often see some celebrities, reporters, politicians, and even the regular man on the street get themselves into trouble when they say the wrong choice of words. No form of apology, rehab, or community service can erase what was already said.
2. A Sped Arrow - This has absolutely no relationship to Robin Hood! The sped arrow theory is metaphorical and can be related to things we say or do whenever we become angry. Rage can make a person commit acts of violence or even murder. A sped arrow can also be a premeditated or random act which may result in things we regret after the deed in done. When the evil plan is accomplished and we are finally caught then we wish that the deed was never accomplished.
3. A Past Life - Things that are past in our lives can never return to us exactly the same way in the present. Some people find it difficult to move on from a relationship they saw as good and may find themselves "stuck in the past". When this happens the person in question will never be able to find their way in life's path. The teaching of Another Thought helps individuals to move on when they find it difficult to let go. Anything that has past through our lives were placed there for various reasons and we must see it that way. Past relationships and situations that proved to be negative must first be forgotten. Ironically, these are the things that are often replayed in our minds time after time. Some individuals become depressed or even suicidal because they were not willing to give up negative things from the past.
4. A Neglected Opportunity - There is an old saying; "Opportunity only knocks once". Whenever we get an opportunity to do something positive we should cease the moment without any doubt. There is a similar quote taken from the book "Another Thought" it says; 'Chance comes once, second time as luck, third time as fate'. Once an opportunity has past us by it will never return to us exactly the same way. Life is a cosmic cycle and its motion never ceases to stop. We often hear of stories where people tell of lost opportunities. They often tell their stories with profound regret. Don't allow a positive opportunity to past you by.
