One Way Street


I was just reading a quote from the Persian mystic & poet Rumi, which finished with the sentence – “No ripe grape ever again becomes green, and no mature fruit ever again becomes raw.”

How true this is. The things we do, don’t do, say, don’t say etc. are all a one way street. Whilst many software tools we use have a handy “Un-Do” function, we do not.

This reminds me of an interview I read with a prison psychiatrist, who commented something along the lines of, the biggest regret of many lifers is that they could never go back, they could never un-murder someone and bring them back to life.

When we make our decision, small and big, often we select a route we can never go back on. And, whilst in our minds we may return again and again, it’s done, over, finito.
