Until the grapes are crushed
There is no wine to drink
Until the flowers are crushed
There are no perfumed fragrances
Until the gold goes through fire
There is no jewelry carved beautifully
Until we do not go through our suffering
There is no pleasure awaiting us
Until the clouds do not thunder
There is no rain falling anywhere
Until the hate does not stop
There is no love found anywhere
Until the anger does not subside
There is no peace at all
So during those grinding times, know that the road of your life is under construction. There are seemingly more pebbles, muck, stones and debris that surrounds us. But Unless and Until we hold on to divinity with the deep conviction that the Master is planning that smooth freeway to take us to higher destinations in great speed, then the journey through the process of this construction will be that of courage, learning, expanding and ascending.
Being able to laugh heartily and smile genuinely are simple blessings. Hold on to them. They are precious gems, don’t ever take them for granted. Our very existence depends on how happily one embraces each moment.
