Delight in Existence
"The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be."
Robert Fugue, It Was on Fire When I Lay Down on It
"Acceptance is not a judgment or sentencing. In acceptance, we recognize and accept the larger scope of life. This means to simply be with how it feels in this moment. Set aside the mind stories, judgments, criticisms and everything else. Simply feel. And accept.
Acceptance brings a spaciousness that alleviates tension. And thus, a sense of humor and self-humility goes even further.
Acceptance doesn’t wait for the right circumstance in the future, nor does it belabor past events and traumas.
Acceptance is not self-denigrating. It is simply a quiet balance of observation and awareness, though the tasks and challenges of life still need tending to, the burden is set aside for this moment."
Overcome your uncertainties and free yourself from dwelling on sorrow. If you delight in existence, you will become a guide to those who need you, revealing the path to many.
