Knowing is not Required for Healthy Living

Watch how thought sifts for a problem. Always looking to fix,refine and make an experience more complete. Accepting things just as they are does not even seem like an option to such a mind. The fear is that things will become progressively more uncomfortable, threatening and unmanageable if we allow for unconditional rest. The truth is quite the opposite. Life works out pretty well when we trust and deeply surrender to the moment. The balancing principle is there ever present in our lives; and all too often becomes obstructed by our own addiction to manipulate and rig our own life in favor of more pleasure, comfort, and the fulfillment of desire.
