Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.
Things are up. Things are down. Everything is escalating but everything is stopping. Trying to navigate a path through the convolutions of life is an arduous task.
If a political party is not changing the landscape, then a virus or an economic change will be more than willing to disrupt the best laid plans of mice and men. (Do mice make plans?)
Of all the people whom I encounter, the ones who seem most at ease are the ones who have discovered that freedom comes from being at ease with the certainty of uncertainty.
Personally, I have found this to be one of the most difficult lessons in life to master. And every time I feel as if I am close to that mastery, another unforeseen variable comes along and disrupts the mental harmony that I was so briefly enjoying. Which then, of course, proves to me that I haven’t even come close to mastering that degree of freedom.
I don’t believe that any lifestyle creates a flat blanket of predictability and harmony. Eventually any one of the numerous potential variables disrupts that harmony and leaves discord in its wake.
In the course of trying to navigate a pathway through a happy and fulfilled lifestyle, I do not see any way around having to continually discern the choice between holding on and letting go. As much as we might feel that we are on target, there is almost always equal evidence in our own personal space to shed light on how far off target we still really are.
Wishing you harmony on your journey on this rainy Wednesday in Los Angeles🌧🌧🌧
