All Shall Be Well And All Shall Be Well And All Manner Of Thing Shall Be Well

I am a mutant.

I can see, now, where my people, may, quite probably, have been working, unknowingly, over the centuries, to bring me sandyto this place. To make me into a mutant.

But then, my immediate forebears: raising me, their child, they tried their best, but they could not; squash my mutancy.

They could not.

And so, then, I went out into the world.

And so, forty years on, mutant par excellance, I am, tonight, so happy.

Because, there is a woman, who knows what I know.

I don’t care she’s been dead 600 years.

Her name is Julian of Norwich. And she is a witch. And a mystic. And a saint. And a seer. And she saw this:

All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.

This is where, all my life, I have been wanting to be going. This is where, in the past couple years, in all my flailing writing, I have been. With all my “all and all,” and “all and every.” Trying to express. That it’s all okay. That Gaia has given us a pass.

There she is. Julian. All and every, all and everywhere. Six hundred years before. Into the great wide open.

She is sacred; she is secure.

She is The One.

People: settle down. It’s all going to be all okay. Till, so soft and satisfied and secluded and sweet, we all, go, together, into, the great wide open. And—if this happens to help you—we meanwhile never look, once, ever, back.

    oh dear, life has been most difficult of late so I have been shouting: “all WILL be well!” And I believe it is imperative that I believe that. BUT I checked and speaking correctly, I must say “all SHALL be well. Apparently the use of WILL implies CHOICE, while SHALL is a “that’s it” statement. So I keep learning from you because as a fellow mutant I must—And, thus, all SHALL be well. We mutants will mutate and survive– oh, whoops–we mutants SHALL mutate and survive. sothlice.

    Steven King uses this (“all will be well . . . . ” in its entirety) without any attribution in several books. thank you for finding the source.
