Don’t Run From That What You Can’t Control.


Don’t try to avoid that what is controlled by others.

You’ll be spending your life running away from something you simply cannot run away from.

A good surfer observes the turmoil of the waves with great calmth before she harnesses its power for her own benefit. She does not try to avoid the waves, nor does she waste her energy trying to control the movement of the waves.

Stability is a result of your judgement, not of your environment.

Instead of seeking for external peace, focus on finding and maintaining internal peace independent of the actions of others.
