"I have learned silence . . .

. . . from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind.  I should not be ungrateful to these teachers."  Kahlil Gibran

Being alive is a great gift as is learning.  When we are grateful for all teachers and all life lessons we begin to see that everything is a gift, allowing us to grow and go forward.  Just like waves hitting against the rocks, a carving of sorts occurs and both are needed for the re-shaping.  To learn what we need to learn, often we are presented the opposite force.  Gratitude for the new awareness opens our heart and sets us free.
