Even when you tear its petals off one after another,
the rose keeps laughing and doesn’t bend in pain.
“Why should I be afflicted because of a thorn?
It is the thorn which taught me how to laugh.”
Whatever you lost through fate,
be certain that it saved you from pain.
When I Asked God for Strength
He Gave Me Difficult Situations to Face
When I asked God for intelligence
He Gave Me Puzzles to Solve.
When I Asked God for Happiness
He Showed Me Some Unhappy People
When I Asked God for Wealth
He Showed Me How to Work Hard
When I Asked God for Favors
He Showed Me Opportunities to Work Hard
When I Asked God for Peace
He Showed Me How to Help Others
God Gave Me Nothing I Wanted
He Gave Me Everything I Needed.
Whatever happens to you,
don’t fall in despair.
Even if all the doors are closed,
a secret path will be there for you that no one knows.
You can’t see it yet but so many paradises are at the end of this path.
Be grateful! It is easy to thank after obtaining what you want, thank before having what you want.
~ Shams Tabrizi
Half of life is lost in charming others,
the other half is lost in going
through anxieties caused by others.
Leave this play, you’ve played enough!
