How to cope with the storm of life?

“I said: what about my eyes?
He said: Keep them on the road.

I said: What about my passion?
He said: Keep it burning.

I said: What about my heart?
He said: Tell me what you hold inside it?

I said: Pain and sorrow.
He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”

And then there is a quote from Lemony Snicket’s “A series of unfortunate events,” that says “life is a conundrum of esoterica” which literally means that it is series of unfortunate events. In other words life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans (that you think will make you great.) Quote’s main message is that life is an enigma or riddle understood by or meant to be understood by a few who really endeavour to or make an effort to understand.

  • Bitterness makes sweetness discernible like darkness makes sun visible.
  • When there is an overdose of sweetness, bitterness works as a counterbalancing element.
