‘Everything will be all right in the end and if it’s not all right, then it’s not yet the end.’

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

‘Everything will be all right in the end and if it’s not all right, then it’s not yet the end.’ so said the character Sonny Kappor in one of my favourite films ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’.

Life unfolds and we all make the best we can of what is in front of us. We hold hope and trust that all will work out, with some times being a lot trickier than others.

I do not profess to have all the answers, but I have the belief that when we let go and allow the universe to step in, then all will unfold naturally. I think the letting go is about putting down in our hearts and minds our vision of how things should unfold. If we become set on how something should be, then it can get twisted. Whatever the circumstances, by acting from love with all our thoughts, words and actions, then things get a chance to have the breath of life flow through.

Last Saturday night, David and I sat opposite each other enjoying a lovely dinner, which was not planned. We have spent the last few months doing our own thing, working away at new projects, tending to our lives, yet never losing touch with each other as our loving support continued. We believed that in our discussions we were gently helping each other come to terms with the grief of our parting and helping each other to move forward.

Wry chuckle from upstairs at this point, which some of you out there may have heard, but we certainly didn’t!

We sat across the table on Saturday and to our mutual surprise we had a different discussion as we held hands. Our perspectives had shifted, we were both talking to each other in a new way and the realisation gradually floated up that our loving support had crafted a new way forward.

The universe had whispered, her song was heard and we have been blessed with love for a new start.

      The new start lasted 24 hours – ’tis not meant to be. There is much love in letting go and moving on sometimes and this was one of those times. ❤

    “The best exotic Marigold Hotel.” That was a real classic movie wasn’t it?


    • 9 Jane Thorne May 29, 2014 at 11:46 am

      Hello Ian, one of my all time favourite films. David has never seen it, so definately one for us to share. Lovely to hear from you. Xx

    Though your enlightening words to us always flow with insight and intuition, it’s probably the fact that you live them out that provides their true strength and meaning. So glad to hear about this most positive development in your life. It settles on you so well.

    I truly believe there are more than just two variables to a relationship. There are three – you + me + time. Time passes and we change so that when we meet again, we surely cannot expect the same results as any other time (for this is NOT any other time).

    I recently read a beautiful book that described a moment when two (who had been apart for more than 10 years) met again. One felt the need to rush in, and was caught off guard when the other was silent and still. Only then did he explain that he wished a moment to gather everything into the now – so that all of him was in this one (beautiful perfect) place. Maybe our best moments aren’t the ones we worked so hard to make happen, but rather those we tenderly allowed to become. I am so happy for you, Jane. ~ Ever with love, Bobbie ❤

      A beautiful understanding from you Bobbie and the word tenderly is a special word and feeling and our watch word. This is all being created with tenderness and a very special new communication, because it is new. Tender love to you my special friend. ❤ Xxxx

    How much better can it be than to live in the “wonder that is holding the stars apart” and when we come to know that we are, then the strength (or should I say love) of the field shows us the way …

    I can feel the stars and the heavens smiling on you both Jane. How wonderful that a new opportunity for the two of you has arrived.
    With love and hugs,
    Jeannie xxxxx

    Thanks, Jane. I really needed to hear this message today.

    Well, what a lovely post on a grey day. I am so pleased for you both; let go and let God (universe or whatever our interpretation of God might be). You are an inspiration Jane and a wonderful writer.

    Sending lots of love and hugs your way xxx ❤️
