"THE LOVE OF YOUR FATE"
was the one who did the job for me. At a certain moment in his life, the idea
came to him of what he called "the love of your fate." Whatever your
fate is, whatever the hell happens, you say, "This is what I need."
It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a
challenge. If you bring love to that moment—not discouragement—you will find
the strength is there. Any disaster that you can survive is an improvement in
your character, your stature, and your life. What a privilege! This is when the
spontaneity of your own nature will have a chance to flow. Then, when looking
back at your life, you will see that the moments which seemed to be great
failures followed by wreckage were the incidents that shaped the life you have
now. You'll see that this is really true. Nothing can happen to you that is not
positive. Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis,
it is not. The crisis throws you back, and when you are required to exhibit
strength, it comes." ~ Joseph Campbell
