“When you begin to see the seeds of opportunity in the ashes of disaster, then trust is beginning to grow. This trust comes in stages. First, start to see that the ego’s judgments about loss are false. Pain isn’t the truth…It’s what mortals go through to find the truth. Second, look for the other face of disaster or loss, the tiny seed of the new that wants to be born. When you look into the ashes…look well. Third, replace blame and complaining with a calm, sure knowledge that you are protected in nature’s plan – whatever you lost is temporary and unreal. It was bound to go, not because nature is cruel and indifferent but because every step you take toward the real is precious. In this light you will begin to see that loss and gain are just a mask. Underneath is the steady light of the eternal, which shines through everything, weaving unity out of chaos.”
Deepak Chopra, in “The Way of the Wizard”
