An anonymous 30-day solitary retreatant wrote some poetry on retreat. Here’s a sample.

Think About It

We cannot control what happens 
in our lives, only our response.

We cannot control change,
only our thoughts about it.

We cannot control old age, illness and death,
only our acceptance of these givens.

But knowing we control our thoughts, 
responses and acceptance, is enough.

How we think, accept, and respond, 
determines our lives, our joy, and beyond….. 

Think about it !
