“It is said that if we want to be truly powerful we need but command what is happening to happen. While there is a humorous note in this advice, there is also a profound wisdom. We are most powerful when we are aligned with the flow of the universe.
“To deny what is would be like running out on your front lawn in the morning and commanding the sun to reverse direction and set in the east. No matter how strong your wish for this to be so, your chances of succeeding are very slim.
“Our attempts to make life other than it is are just as foolish and ineffectual. To try to change other people to suit us or fight against unchangeable situations is debilitating and useless.
“If something cannot be changed, our most powerful position is to go with it and find a blessing that we could not see when we wanted to be in charge.”
~Alan Cohen, Dare To Be Yourself
