“Some changes look negative on the surface
but you will soon realize that space is being created
in your life for something new to emerge.”
~ Eckhart Tolle
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don’t resist them;
that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward
in whatever way they like.”
~ Lao Tzu

“When I run after what I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me,
and without pain.”

and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arrives by itself?
