Listen to episode 709 of the Inspirational Living podcast: The Charm & Mystery of Life | Inspiring Podcasts. Edited and adapted from Making a Life by Cortland Myers.

Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Life is an involved drama. It is a composition of forces. It is a combination of incidents. There are more semi-colons than full-stops. The judgment should be reserved for integers and not fractions. The process is not the result. The one who jumps to conclusions skips contentment and happiness.

Even though we often fail to recognize it, everything in life has some meaning, emphasis, and relation. Even failures and mistakes enter into the eternal harmony.
