When things are difficult, when my direction is unclear
I know that I’m getting ready for something new.
A new direction or a new learning.
So I try and stay open and relaxed in those times.
It’s definitely not an easy thing to practice,
but it increases the quality of my life.
If I don’t confuse myself when I’m settled,
If I don’t disturb myself when I’m content,
If I don’t wrinkle the smooth fabric of my reality –
What shall become of me?
I may live my whole life in relative peace and die,
never knowing the goldmine I sit upon.
Such a tragedy!
