“No matter how extreme a situation is, it will change. It cannot continue forever. Thus, a great forest fire is destined to burn itself out; a turbulent sea will become calmer…Natural events balance themselves out by seeking their opposites, and this process of balance is at the heart of all healing…Actually, without these slight imbalances, there could be no movement in life..It is being off-balance that keeps life changing…Total balance would only be stasis…All life is continual destruction and healing, over and over again…In the mist of extreme situation, the wise are patient..They know healing will follow upheaval.”365 tao daily meditation by ming-dao deng
Despite our best devotion to deities, philosophies, and faiths: we are members of the fluctuation of nature. As such, change is a constant in the mechanism of our existence. Thus, our best day hides in the current despair, likewise, the lowest moment exist in present happiness.
I was fortunate to begin my process of healing while on earth. Both my parents were not afforded the opportunity of self-cultivation: both died at incredible young ages (35 & 46). If however there is something learned from their contribution, it is, “Never give up”. A chapter of life is not the book. Learn to accept change, regardless of its degree, be resilient, knowing…eventually change will occur, even to our consciousness.
