Let The New Unfold, Have No Preconceived Ideas About It

Let the new unfold, have no preconceived ideas about it. No one person or one
group of people have the whole picture of the new.

It is a vast jigsaw puzzle, which will gradually be formed as each individual contributes his individual part of the picture. As each piece slips into its rightful place, without being forced
and without a struggle – for remember every piece fits into its rightful place
perfectly – so will the New unfold. Slip into your rightful place and there wait
in perfect peace, allowing every other piece to find its place. It is a glorious
future that is unfolding, even if you are unable to see what it is just yet.

Simply accept

Acceptance

February 26, 2013

GeorgiaPerry-serpent

Serpent’s gifts are practicing non attachment, non judgement, seeing everything just as it is…………..

Walk the beauty way, see beauty in everything, everyone, every situation…….  think of a world where everyone holds space of acceptance and love; a family.

I came across this video today, you can skip to 1.50 and then just sit back and listen about family and acceptance, this is walking the beauty way with serpent

The beautiful illustration of serpent is by GEORGIA PERRY, look up her website she has some amazing things CLICK HERE

The following poem just says it all for me.  It took a long time find the place of acceptance of “what is” in life.  Once tasted I realised the answer to  living with that elusive ” inner peace” was trying to achieve acceptance in all areas of my life and day to day life’s challenges.

Whatever life brings up for us, know that its arisen because we have something to learn from it, learn to see the gifts in all and every situation.

The poem is by RUMI, the famous Sufi poet who died in 1273; he states very clearly just what I am trying to say, he says it far more eloquently than I ever could,

THE GUEST HOUSE

This being human is a guest house.

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,

some momentary awareness comes

As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!

Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,

who violently sweep your house

empty of its furniture,

still treat each guest honorably.

He may be clearing you out

for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,

meet them at the door laughing,

and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,

because each has been sent

as a guide from beyond.

RUMI
