The agitation and turmoil that we feel when we encounter something unpleasant or hurtful does not help our situation. We somehow believe that if we are not upset when something "bad" happens, that things will get worse. The opposite is true.
If we surrender our anger, irritation and fear, we will see things more clearly and a solution will become apparent. Our anger and frustration do not help. Why do we hold on to our emotional reactions so strongly? Because we believe they are necessary for our survival. They are not. We do not need them. They make our situation worse. Let's surrender them and choose to remain peaceful in the face of "adverse" circumstances.
We don't have enough information to know what is good or bad for us. Sometimes the worst things turn out to be the best in retrospect. Sometimes the best things turn out to be a disaster.
When the world is crumbling around us, let's surrender and relax, knowing that everything that is occurring is specifically designed to enhance our awakening.
