“On occasion I realize, it’s easier to say the serenity prayer and take the leap of faith, than it is to continue doing what I’m doing”
It takes me a while sometimes to see that I don’t have something to solve, I have something to allow. It is not of me, but through me.
David Whyte in his poem The Bell and the Blackbird writes:
“Either way takes courage,
either way wants you to be nothing
but that self that is no self at all,
wants you to walk to the place
where you find what you already know
how to give
every last thing
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. [Reinhold Niebuhr]
May we all be blessed with the wisdom to know the difference.
