I am going to share a story with you that’s taken from Greek mythology and its taught me a fantastic lesson
(This is my take on the story)
ORPHEUS AND EURYDICE
Orpheus and Eurydice were soul mates their love so great they were never apart. Until one fateful day when Eurydice stepped on a poisonous snake and fell to her death. Orpheus was beside himself, how could he ever sing again without his love and true soul mate by his side.
Orpheus was a great musician he decided to rescue his wife and descended to Hades to sing for her release. His voice so pure and beautiful the dark powers were moved by his plea and released His bride. But with one condition and this was never to be broken.
The powers made him promise not to look at Eurydice until they reached natural light. He agreed seeing that this task was simple, how could the powers be so stupid to mock him this way. Orpheus agreed and the couple started to celebrate with an embrace. But this was forbidden, only when they reached the top could they really unite.
The journey was long and hard but Orpheus had full faith that they were free and she was behind him. Up until he couldn’t hear Eurydice there anymore, he panicked and weakened. The warm air from the sun took his breath and replaced it with the sense of glory as he reached the top. As he turned around and caught a glimpse of his beautiful bride the grey light was still cascading over her face. He looked too soon……………………………………………………………………….
At that very moment he didn’t even get to say goodbye. She was taken by a force so great that he watched her being dragged down the dark tunnel, back to Hades and vanishing before his eyes. There she would meet her fate and all at the fault of her lover. A faint cry was all he could detect for a second, all because he faltered and looked back. Orpheus never got over his loss, forever missing his bride and becaming a symbol of resistance in accepting loss, which requires leaving the past behind and looking ahead to your future x
The morale of the story…………. if you pay too much attention to your past, you will miss out on your future.
So how has that affected me as a person and why am I telling you this?
Lately I have been dwelling on what GenieHomeSwap.Com was going to be like and that’s not healthy, but since reading this story I am not going to do that anymore. Things happen for a reason and maybe Quantum’s demise (web programmers liquidation) has actually prevented Genies liquidation in the future because she wasn’t going to be hosted by a bunch of cowboys.
I think maybe some of you might find this useful as a life exercise. Whether it comes in handy to apply within your family, work or even money. Whatever happens we need to keep on going my friends and that’s the key x x
If we can help others on the way ………………….DO IT Trust me it’s a life changing experience.
If the world is kinder place then it will be a happier one too x
I hope you enjoy my take on the story x
Night all x x
