Via Words of Wisdom - February 10, 2019 đź’Ś

The root of the problem lies in the way we deal with change. Most of us feel so insecure that we want to create a structure around us makes us feel safe and then we don’t want it to change. Any change increases our uncertainty and our confusion and our inadequacy. And it frightens us.
Think of how bizarre that is, because you are a part of nature. Look out there, and you show me something out there that isn’t changing. The nature of things is that they change, including us. Do you see how you’re in a losing strategy if you pit yourself against change? See, it’s a losing game.
