life wants it

water rushing over rocksSometimes events occur in life that I, the body mind, don’t want. But life wants it–or it wouldn’t be happening–and it’s not personal. If I fight with life… well, we know who wins. Every time. Life.

So arguing, bargaining, complaining, resisting–we are welcome to them all, but what will they bring? Suffering. So what is it that I really want? To suffer, or to flow with what life brings?
