Life will do what needs to be done. We are the acted upon.
We are not changed, healed or transformed by making an effort. Even as a concept, efforting-ing is exhausted. Change happens when we drop the conceit of doer-ship, expunge ambition and welcome what happens.
Problems proliferate whenever we hang on to something, when we cling to it.
A loss, reversal, rejection or sudden diminishment—these experiences are mini-deaths, practice runs.
Obstacles are not for fighting against. They are for observing, examining, inquiring into.
Marcus Aurelius: “What stands in the way becomes the way.”
