Obstacles that we face can become our teachers. In this way, life can teach us and wake us up.
And the key is to approach it this way. Rather than seeing life as more and more of a burden. Leading to us becoming more and more depressed and losing hope. Leading to us becoming discouraged.
The simple answer is learning to stay.
To stay with what is.
With a good sense of humour.
With loving kindness (towards yourself and others).
And by bringing in as much warmth and gentleness as possible.
The world can be a hard and unforgiving place. We all go through struggles and challenges. We don’t need to add extra harshness – we need to treat ourselves and each other which as much kindness and love and gentleness as possible.
And ultimately, we need to hang in there, and wait for the tide to change.
