Il nostro destino

I found this beautiful quote in Jennifer Allison´s today´s post:

“Non abbiate paura, il nostro destino
Non può essere presa da noi, è un dono “.
– Dante Alighieri, Inferno

“Do not be afraid; our fate
Cannot be taken from us; it is a gift.”

I really wonder though…

What do you do the times when Destiny feels like pure hell…?
You are irrevocably caught in its whims, and these “whims” are so incredibly precise…

I speak from own experience:

No matter if immense hardships can show in due time to be a blessing in
disguise… – Can we still see Destiny´s dark side as a gift…?

The more unhappy the more we search

Stop searching!

There is a big truth in that. When we cease searching, we find us exactly how we are. We might not like it always…
And because of that, we search further and further. We invariably want to be more rich, more healthy, more satisfied, more I don´t know what…

We are so busy searching, so we end up chasing ourselves and life around us. “Sometimes in the future we will find”…
Searching becomes thus important, so great chances, opportunities, people we can learn from may come in our way but we see none of these gifts.

Thinking that achieving the things we strive for will make us happy, is pure illusion. If we manage to achieve certain goals, we will rush to new ones right away.

It makes sense, doesn´t it? The more unhappy the more we search…

If you are willing to face this simple but overwhelming truth, your life is about to change.

Many people become ill in this race of “self-fulfilling”. Becoming ill for them may be a blessing in disguise as they are forced to stop and accept What presently is.
If you have the discernment and common sense of quitting  this crazy race before you attract a serious disease, then you might say you are blessed with wisdom.

Taking the decision to accept HOW YOU ARE AND WHAT IT IS NOW, is the end of searching.

You might find you are utterly miserable, ugly, too tall or too short, not so talented, frustrated, insecure, lonely…For sure, it is uncomfortable to face this raw reality…

But, there is such a great relief to accept yourself! To put away the burden of searching is so incredibly rewarding…
Getting to know this ineffable rest is the beginning of a dignified life. What matters if you are big or small, talented or untalented, this or that…


Rest comes out of acceptance. Once you know this, you will begin TO FIND without searching.

Gradually, you will FIND that hidden person, the very thing you were so hardly looking for:
