Excerpt from The Promise
of a New Day
events have their own order. Its human to
want to impose order from the outside - our order;
but often our attempt to put things in order resembles
the old man who tried to push the river. It never
went any faster, and if he stopped pushing, it
got there just the same.
Some people seem to have
a knack for order. It could be that theyve
learned to let things take their own shape. If
order is natural, then maybe disorder is what
we create with our human fussing. It could be,
too, that disorder is in the eye of the beholder
- especially if the beholder is a perfectionist.
Serenity is the ability
to appreciate natural order.
