Life Lessons from “my” Lost Umbrella
“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”

In fact it is always painful, either a lot or a little. Yet over time great wisdom teachers seem to agree on one thing—losing is mysteriously and inextricably intertwined with finding! For example, Jesus says that if you want to find your life, you must lose it. How can this be? According to our everyday way of thinking, this makes no sense.
