COMPLAINT – A lesson for the future?
In this, some would say, unfair world the question often asked is, ‘why do some make money in times of recession while the masses of the poor suffer?’ and, I guess you also have to ask, how is it that some remain at ease in moments of utter confusion?
In the present time it occurs to me that all of the pent up emotion manifesting in mass riots against the will of the people for instance in the election of a new President of the USA I ask myself, ‘what is that all going to achieve?’
I thank the Lord that at least here in the UK there may have been much misgiving on the part of those who voted to stay in the EU, but at least we were adult enough to accept the democratic choice, however slim, of Brexit!
However I do wish that the terms could be agreed sooner rather than later instead of after another round of squabbling! Let the woman get on with it with her mandate from the people, say I!
It is a fact that to complain and certainly to complain so violently as in the US only invites more to complain about. It surely is about time there was some research into this little known fact to prove that there are ways and means of getting what you want without complaining and as we all should know, the start of that achievement is to begin the change within yourself.
We can take a lesson from an American Poet in:
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
