I saw grief drinking a cup of sorrow and called out, “It tastes sweet, does it not?”
“You’ve caught me,” grief answered, “and you’ve ruined my business, how can I sell sorrow when you know it’s a blessing?”
“The falls of our life provide us with the energy to propel ourselves to a higher level.”
Jalaluddin Rumi (1207 – 1273)
Lesson: You do not have to pretend to like the tragedy that happened in your life. Only promise yourself to use it to generate the energy to move to a higher place in your life.
There is something that can be learned in the middle of sorrow.
