Whatever the ordeals you must pass through, tell yourself: I am a spirit, and I can therefore become master of my destiny.

Whatever the ordeals you must pass through, tell yourself: I am a spirit, and I can therefore become master of my destiny.
"When faced with the difficulties of life and your powerlessness over events, you sometimes feel overwhelmed. But understand that nowhere is it written that you must be irreparably crushed by fate. Fate exists only for those who forget the presence of the spirit within them.

Whatever the ordeals you must pass through, tell yourself: I am a spirit, and I can therefore become master of my destiny. At first, of course, you will be able to change very little, because you will only be able to deviate from your course by a hundredth of a degree. But, if you persevere in this new direction, one day there will be an entire solar system between you and fate. What matters most is that you have rediscovered the power of the spirit within you."

How might this be applied by someone who is severely retarded or autistic?
If one exception exists to a law then the law is invalid.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 44448741


"Peoples inadequacies and imperfections do not arise from their spirit being deficient. The deficiencies come from the physical instruments the spirit has to manifest itself through, and one of these special instruments is obviously the brain. When you meet someone who is mentally handicapped, be aware its not their spirit thats weak their spirit may be that of a very great sage; its their brain, the physical instrument through which they must express themselves, thats in a dilapidated state. Give a violin with slack strings to a violinist: even if they are the greatest virtuoso in the world, they wont be able to play it. The spirit is also a great virtuoso, but it needs a good instrument to play.
People expect too much from the spirit: they give it a derelict body and expect it to perform miracles. But no, it cannot. And to use another image, its as though you wanted to strike a light from a damp match; its impossible."

Nicely and accurately put. Wish I had your flare for words, I have said this many times, just not so well.
