This close is a beautiful asimily for when you are trying so hard to control the outcome in your favor; however, the outcome does not happen as so. Instead, the outcome is usually something you don’t want to happen or did not anticipate happening. Like everything in life, even this close, has meaning and some truth behind it. This close is a representation of control. Controlling so life will go in your favor, rather than you going in the favor of life. However, it can be misunderstood as ‘what the heck went wrong’ or ‘where did I mess up here’. The emphasis is too often placed on what could I have done differently or better to rig the outcome in my favor. Very rarely is it looked at as, this had to happen in order for something else to happen. It happened because thats how its supposed to unfold for me to gain the most amount of understanding of life and grow as a spirit. All spiritual growth happens when either shit hits the fan, when we are faced with situations that are not controllable or when we deal with pain. All this eventually culminates to an awakening of something within that causes us to look at and live life different. Not until life slaps you across the face, do you really understand what it means to be alive.
