Cultivating and Celebrating the Art of the UnexpectedBook - 1997
The word serendipity was coined by the eighteenth-century British writer Horace Walpole, who defined it as "that quality of mind which, through awareness, sagacity, and good fortune, allows one to frequently discover something good while seeking something else". It is an attitude of mind and heart that attracts and enhances joy. As a mental approach, serendipity can energize your life by enabling you to balance spontaneity and structure and allowing you to harness time, not to manage it. As a spiritual quality, serendipity can create a bridge between your will and the will of the Divine, allowing your life to be guided and open to change. With Richard Eyre's new translation of the ancient Persian fable The Three Princes of Serendip, this delightful and poetic book shows you how to develop serendipity of the spirit, and move from where you are to where, perhaps, God wants you to be.
