There is a story told where a shepherd walking on a road with his flock of sheep is asked a question from a stranger traveling past the shepherd. The stranger asks, “what kind of weather will we have today?” The shepherd answered, “the kind of weather I like.” The stranger asked, “how do you know that?” The response was, “having found out that sometimes I cannot get what I like, I learned to like what I get. So I am sure I will like it.” This is non-resistance, it is asking for SERENITY, CALMNESS, COMPOSURE, PATIENCE. RIGHT NOW, IT IS LIKE THIS. WITH PATIENCE AND PLANNING FOR THE RIGHT TIME, MAKE THE CHANGES FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL.
If you cannot change a situation, for the moment, then accept it as it is. Longfellow said; “the best thing one can do when it is raining. LET IT RAIN.” The CALMNESS that one should possess in those momentary situations will allow a person to avoid frustration, disappointment, fear and anger. Live with the COMPOSURE THAT; RIGHT NOW, IT IS LIKE THIS. WITH COMPOSURE FIND THE RIGHT TIME TO MAKE THE CHANGES FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL.
As we all experience in life, some things are not permanent. There are changes happening always. So if you cannot change something for the time, RIGHT NOW, IT IS LIKE THIS. There is a SERENITY prayer that goes like this; Creator grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. There will always be a time for change, be PATIENT, MAKE THE CHANGES TO BENEFIT ALL. RIGHT NOW, IT IS LIKE THIS.
RIGHT NOW IT IS LIKE THIS, RIGHT NOW.
TAKE CARE, STAY WELL, STAY HEALTHY. THANK YOU.
