The Happy Ending Cannot Come in the Middle of the Story

I was just doing some energy healing work on myself and felt like a significant turning point had come. I asked myself "why haven't I been able to get myself in alignment about this before?" and felt myself drawn to look at a quote Paul's mother has thumbtacked to the wall. We've lived here since December and I have never been curious enough to read it.

The quote said: "the true secret of being a hero lies in knowing the order of things... Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophesies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story." from The Last Unicorn by Peter Beagle
