BLESSING IN DISGUISE

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~Oprah Winfrey

Adversity is a painful challenge to our conventional ego with its conventional plans and expectations…the ego finds itself in a trap and unable to escape through its conventional door but blind to other doors which can open up to freedom…there is a creative door,an intuitive door,an imaginative door,an insight door,an acceptance door,and many more…but these doors will not open unless the conventional ego surrenders to a feeling of helplessness in adversity.

“Yes, at the very bottom of my soul I feel grateful to all my misery and bouts of sickness and everything about me that is imperfect, because this sort of thing leaves me with a hundred back doors through which I can escape from enduring habits.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

“Sometimes in tragedy we find our life’s purpose – the eye sheds a tear to find its focus.” ~Robert Brault

“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.” ~Arthur Golden

When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful. ~Barbara Bloom

“If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.” ~Robert Fulghum

“Blessed are the poor in spirit for they shall know the kingdom of heaven.”~ Bible
