In order to make friends with our lives we might want to realize that each day, life is our friend and it teaches us what we need along the path. Once we realize that we are always in a state of transition there is nothing to fear. If we are always hoping for something better we miss the cherished moments of our lives. They pass and we aren't present with them. We are always grasping for something more and more never really gets here . Nothing ever sums itself up in the way that we like to dream about. The uncomfortable uncertain places we go to each day, presents an ideal teaching moment for us to practice not getting caught. We might allow our hearts and minds to open beyond limit. When we try this, our situation becomes more gentle, nonaggressive and we don't always need an immediate answer or solution.
