The Four Steps



“When faced with

any difficulty of life,

resolve it by following

these four steps:

face it, accept it, deal with it,

and then let it go.“


~ Master Cheng Yen


Things only become more difficult

when we do nothing about them.

The less we do the more that fear

raises its ugly head.

Today, know that this too shall pass,

that things will change and that  to be happy

let go and let God and enjoy the here and now.

Life is learning to resolve the difficulties.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.

“These things

will destroy the human race:

politics without principle,

progress without compassion,

wealth without work,

learning without silence,

religion without fearlessness

and worship without awareness.”


Anthony de Mello, SJ


I do not know if it is the cynic in me

or just old age realism, but,

having been raised in the middle of the last century,

I perceive that the world has begun

the downward slippery slide towards destruction.

Everyone worships some things,

hopefully those things are peace of mind,

love of life and God.

Today, let us all pray and do our best to

reverse the downward trend.

Life is not to be taken for granted.

Life is living and loving in the here and now.
