Saying Yes to Life’s Challenges
- Everything Changes and Ends
Our illusion that things will be fair, or that pain won’t happen to us, or that people will be trustworthy, is called into question by the situations we face in the course of our life.
- Things Do Not Always Go According to Plan
Being wise means living with life’s conditions in an allowing way.
- Life is Not Always Fair
A wise person knows that losses will happen sometimes, that unfair dealings will sometimes occur, and that he can survive them.
- Pain is Part of Life
Since life is a journey, we can grow not only by conquest of fear but also by occasional surrender to it.
- People Are Not Loving and Loyal All the Time
Love arises from our imperfection, from our being different and always in need of forgiveness, encouragement, and the missing half of ourselves that we are searching for.
