Que Sera, Sera

For peace of mind, we need to resign as general manager of the universe. - Larry Eisenberg

It is one of those basic truths that you cannot expect to be filled with inner peace if you expect to have control of everything in your life. There are far too many factors for this. Giving up control of things that you have no control of, a resignation to the universe, it is then that you will gain a sense of serenity.

Furthermore, there's no guilt or frustration in taking responsibility for things that are outside of anyone's foresight or control. Merely acceptance.

So, let what will be, be. As the song goes, "Que sera, sera."
