There is an
ancient saying which says
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things
which I can not change and wisdom to change the things which I can"
Only thing that we can change and which we
have the power to change is our reaction to the events. "How we respond to an
event is in our hand". We can respond either from Mind or with awareness.
All things and events are happening or predetermined. Only thing that is not
happening and that we have to practice is being aware.
Real wisdom lies in putting effort in being more aware and responding each
moment with awareness.
