Often we fall into stress or panic when we realize that we cannot determine what happens in our lives. When something unplanned, unintentional happens. We strive actually almost every day to do everything right and thereby make our lives good for us. In this efforting and designing we often overestimate our control over life. And when something else happens, we might ask ourselves how this could occur. We refuse it, feel treated unfairly by life and perhaps get angry or desperate. The fact is, however, that no wo/man can have full control of her/his life. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. To a certain degree we all sit in a nut shell and float on the ocean of life.
What percentage of your current suffering is related to denying this?
What happens if you say “yes” to the nutshell?
