The following poem just says it all for me. It took a long time find the place of acceptance of “what is” in life. Once tasted I realised the answer to living with that elusive ” inner peace” was trying to achieve acceptance in all areas of my life and day to day life’s challenges.
Whatever life brings up for us, know that its arisen because we have something to learn from it, learn to see the gifts in all and every situation.
The poem is by RUMI, the famous Sufi poet who died in 1273; he states very clearly just what I am trying to say, he says it far more eloquently than I ever could,
