I have to write about the quote on the Tibetan calendar that hangs in my office before I turn over the July page to August.
“Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck”, says the 14th Dalai Lama. I’m sure we’ve all had that feeling – perhaps when we wake up from a total infatuation that didn’t work out and realize that our friends were right after all. Or when we don’t get the job that our logic was insisting was the right one – and we didn’t give our heart a vote at all. So luck took over and made sure we ended up in the right place at the right time.
I always try to copy my friend Carolyn’s example, and claim everything that happens as a blessing – whether I think it’s good or bad at the time, I affirm that it came to bless me.
It works for Carolyn, it works for me – and obviously it works for the Dalai Lama.
