“What we call our destiny is truly our character
and that character can be altered.
The knowledge that we are responsible for our actions and attitudes
does not need to be discouraging, because it also means that we are free to change this destiny.
One is not in bondage to the past, which has shaped our feelings, to race, inheritance, background.
All this can be altered if we have the courage to examine how it formed us.
We can alter the chemistry provided we have the courage to dissect the elements.”

~ Anaïs Nin (shared by Éva Patus)

Rumi’s answer to questions asked by a disciple –

What is Poison?
He replied with a beautiful answer – Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything
What is fear…..?
Non acceptance of uncertainty.
If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes adventure…!
What is envy ?
Non acceptance of good in others
If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration…!
What is Anger?
Non acceptance of things which are beyond our control.
If we accept, it becomes tolerance…!
What is hatred?
Non acceptance of person as he is.
If we accept person unconditionally, it becomes love…!

Sunday reflection…the vigilant spirit

There is no way to avoid storms,
but the cautious do not fear them.
There is no way to avoid karmic returns,
but the vigilant spirit,
who is striving for the good in all that he thinks and does,
raises to himself an effective protection.

…truth and love have always won.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history
the ways of truth and love have always won.
There have been tyrants, and murderers,
and for a time they can seem invincible,
but in the end they always fall.
Think of it–always.”

~ Mahatma Gandhi
