“When I run after what I think I want,

my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;

if I sit in my own place of patience,

what I need flows to me,

and without pain.

From this I understand what I want also wants me,

is looking for me and attracting me.

There is a great secret here for anyone

who can grasp it.” —-Rumi

Today I live with a Higher Power of My Own Understanding over to whom I have turned my will and my life.  This means that today I can live from my heart and not my ego-centered rationalizing head.  This means that I don’t have to pretend I am in control, as I never had any control over people, places or things anyway.

I have learned today not to have expectations, as they cause disappointment.  I try to live in the moment, go with the flow, and know that everything is happening perfectly in and around me for my best good.

Therefore, no stress.  No anxiety.  When the student is ready, the master appears.

Thus, I have learned patience.

My Higher Power has a plan for me so today I have a purpose to do the best I can and be my best me.  Not a hidden secret nor easy to grasp, but life-changing and humbling.
