The Good That Is Ever-Present
Being even-minded—neither clinging to nor resisting the way things are—allows us to see through changing conditions to the good that is ever present.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
It is said that the one thing that never changes is that everything changes. Sometimes those changing conditions are not what we expect or what we would like. Changes in our life can be small things or major events. We can get really upset or angry when these changes occur or we can observe, acknowledge and honor our feelings about the change, but accept that things change. We suffer much less when we can move through these changes with grace. Our meditation practice helps us to prepare to live our lives flowing like a river, around and through the obstacles of life. Our meditation practice helps us to more easily see the good that is always present, no matter what changes occur.
