Don’t resist the Master Sculptor!

Life is a Master Sculptor.

We must offer ourselves completely to Life. We must ask ourselves whether we are offering ourselves as clay, allowing us to be molded into something of better value, or are we resisting when the Sculptor is at work on us, ‘beating’ us to shape? In making that choice, we find the subtle but important difference between pain and suffering. Pain is inevitable. It is, always, when we resist, that we suffer.

As Jalaluddin Rumi, the 13th Century Persian poet has asked: “If you are irritated by every rub, how will your mirror be polished?”
