“Make Full Use of What Happens to You”
Every difficulty in life presents us with an opportunity to turn inward and to invoke our own submerged inner resources. The trails we endure can and should introduce us to our strengths.
“Wise” people tend to look beyond the incident itself and seek to form the habit of putting it to good use. On the occasion of an accidental event, don’t react in a “world is going to end” fashion: Remember to turn inward and ask what resources you have dealing with it. Dig deeply! You possess strengths you might not realize you have. Find the right one and Use it.
If you encounter an attractive person, then self-restraint is the resource needed ya dig; If pain or weakness, then stamina; if verbal abuse, then patience is the key.
As time goes by and you build on the habit of matching the appropriate inner resource to each incident, you will not tend to get carried away by life’s appearance. You will stop feeling over-whelmed so much of the time and handle your priorities accordingly. Ya Dig….. #HippieMovement
