Overcoming Obstacles- by Sri Swami Satchidnanada, Cover art by Peter Max
“One’s whole life is an obstacle course. The more
obstacles that you overcome, the bigger the prize.
If you avoid the obstacles, then there is no prize.
Without those obstacles, you would never discover
So, instead of cursing the obstacles on your path, or
the people who placed them there, try to find ways
that will help you face them and overcome them. And
when you do, a great joy will arise within you and you
will bless the obstacles instead of cursing them.”
