“As You Sow, So Shall You Reap…”

***************“As you sow, so shall you reap…”
(Paramhansa Yogananda)

As ugliness highlights the beauty,
As hatred underlines the love,
Every obsession and every condition
Has its ultimate purpose in life…

Problems, unpleasant situations,
Whether we avoid them or not,
Are a constant part of our existence,
No matter how cautious we are…

I wish I were a grossmeister at chess
To be able to see three steps ahead…
This quality, sadly, so few possess,
Let us deal with what we have…

Our patience will always be tested,
Our wisdom will be questioned at times…
One shouldn’t try to be perfect,
For the balance’ sake, let us be bad sometimes…
Good or evil, happiness or grief –
Make our lives merely …complete…
Just bear in mind one important thing:
“As you sow, so shall you reap…”
