Expensive Grace

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience.                                                                             Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet.                   Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion.                                       Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.                        Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love.                                                                        Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear.                                                  Anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go.

  1. Such noble thoughts, Eileen

    Thank you for sharing

    My best to you

  2. Hmm. Not noble to me….rather the nitty gritty of the spiritual life. I’m not consistent about anything unfortunately, but have experienced the reality of these and the astonishing results enough to persevere in trying.
