” Stop trying to protect, to rescue, to judge, to manage the lives around you . . . remember that the lives of others are not your business. They are their business. They are God’s business . . . even your own life is not your business. It also is God’s business. Leave it to God. It is an astonishing thought. It can become a life-transforming thought . . . unclench the fists of your spirit and take it easy . . . What deadens us most to God’s presence within us, I think, is the inner dialogue that we are continuously engaged in with ourselves, the endless chatter of human thought. I suspect that there is nothing more crucial to true spiritual comfort . . . than being able from time to time to stop that chatter . . . ”

― Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets

I used to worry endlessly about family, have learnt in time that while we must do what we can, we need to extend our love and compassion unconditionally to our loved ones. Its our unconditional support that they need to fulfill their unique destinies. Most importantly we must take care of ourselves. If we take care of ourselves, we can take care of loved ones and friends too. This was missing link of my realization.Little late guess 🙂

In this context, hope you like this Frederick Buechner observation. Have a nice smiling day dear friends.Thank you!
