Reflecting on what one has learned

Author: Paulo Coelho

By Paulo Coelho

Rabbi Elisha ben Abuyah used to say:
‘Those who are open to life’s lessons and who do not live on a diet of prejudices are like a blank sheet of paper on which God writes his words in divine ink.
Those who view the world through cynical, prejudiced eyes are like a sheet of paper that has already been filled and on which there is no room for any new words.
Do not concern yourself with what you know or what you do not know. Do not think about the past or the future, merely allow God’s hands to write the surprises of the present on each new day.’
