I have experienced that universe, or nature is a most compassionate yet ruthless teacher. She teaches us to learn from her, to keep our eyes and ears open to learn infinite wisdom she shares all the time. She teaches us the art of ACCEPTANCE! Yes, as long as we are readily accepting all the harsh and happy experiences, we are fine, but if nature sees us not accepting but reacting to persons, situations and circumstances, she keeps teaching us harsh lessons till we learn to accept and then we are done! We are ready for the next higher lesson!
Love and Peace!
