Why not? Life has ups and downs. The ocean does not fight against its waves. At it’s depths it remains calm and stable. Why then do we resist our difficulties and only want the good experiences ? The other day we watched as flames took a beautiful home in our area. In that home were personal treasures that won’t be replaced. We recently damaged our car. Seeing this burning home put our loss in perspective. We didn’t lose baby pictures. We’ve only been unconvinced by having to walk and rely on public transport while our car is being repaired. What is the meringue? A greater appreciation to be with the waves. Our ups and downs are just life’s play and expression. We can be willing to be with what arises. To just be without making things larger than they are and just work with what is.
