That the birds of worry and care
fly about your head
This you cannot change
But that they build nests in your hair
This you can prevent.

for Bek who actually reads this blog

accept everything

Any kind of expectation creates a problem. We should accept, but not expect. Whatever comes, accept it. Whatever goes, accept it. The immediate benefit is that your mind is always peaceful.
