BLESSING IN DISGUISE

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~Oprah Winfrey

Adversity is a painful challenge to our personal self with its plans and expectations…the personal self finds itself in a trap but blind to doors which can open up to an acceptable experience of adversity…there is a creative door,an intuitive door,an imaginative door,an insight door,an acceptance door,and many more…but strangely these doors will not open unless the personal self gives up resisting 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
