If everything happens as it must, where’s the sense in saying, “This should never have happened.”? Or: “This is unacceptable!” The word heaps of politics and religion may be understood as reaction formations whereby opposing tendencies are exaggerated and vilified. Ego needs its enemies.
All ego can do is resist, judge, blame, stand against, object to. Observe its response to this: Whatever happens in the present moment, even if it’s hard or painful, is for the best.
Nothing changes until something dies. Or, at the minimum, is definitively ended.
The notion that one thing causes another thing is widely embraced but also meritless. There is no such thing as a sole cause. Everything causes everything.
There is a sweet spot between the patterned polarities of optimism and pessimism: acceptance. Allowing what is to be. This is a rich and loamy soil. Eros inhabits it. Green erupts from it.
