Friends of ours recently got engaged. They had been together for five years before the question was popped, at the summit of a snow-covered slope. The excitement and happiness of the moment is evident in their faces. Smiles. Shining eyes. Gazing at the engagement ring. It is just the beginning. But that beginning – that proposal – is important.
Life is like a wild tiger.
You can either lie down
and let it
Lay its paw on your head –
Or sit on its back and ride it.
~ RIDE THE WILD TIGER from A Guide for the Advanced Soul by Susan Hayward
Everything that happens to you is your teacher.
The secret is to learn to sit at the feet of your own life and be taught by it.
