You spend most of your life running after things, doing things. You forgotthat being comes before doing. Those who remember this secret make an effortto "be" and discover that when they stop and observe, life helps and bringswhatever is needed. Learning to be is learning to be at peace. It is ourmost fundamental nature.

To attain peace when something unfortunate happens, we have to open up to the possibility that there may be benefit and good hidden in that situation. Accept and learn, then your feelings will be positive and you will find solutions. You will have transformed defeat into victory.
