I am sharing this beautiful poem which was forwarded to me sometime back by my friend Sanjay.
You will receive a body
You may like it or hate it,but
it will be yours for the entire period
of this time around.
You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time
informal school called Life.
Each day in this school
You will have the opportunity
To learn lessons. You may like
the lessons or think them irrevalant and stupid.
There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial and error: Experimentation.
The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the proccess
as the experiment that ultimately “works”.
A lesson is repeated – until learned.
A lesson will be presented to you
in various forms until you have learned it.
When you have learnt it, you can then
Go on to the next lesson.
Learning lessons does not end.
There is no part of life that
does not contain its lessons.
If you are alive, there are lessons to be learnt.
Others are merely mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate
something about another person
Unless it reflects something
You love or hate about yourself.
What you make of your life is up to you.
You have all the tools and resources you need.
What you do with them is up to you.
The choice is yours.
Your answers lie inside you.
The answers to Life’s questions
Lie inside you.
All you need to do is
Look, listen and trust.
