No future is worth it. No object is attained without sacrifice of equal measure, if not more. Now more than ever I am certain: there is no wrong way to live. Or, maybe there’s no right way. In either case, the only sane thing to do is to live in the moment.
Let Now dictate whether you end up providing tirelessly for your family, or succumbing helplessly to the depths of creative despair. Or somewhere in between.
Whatever your destination, the price of life is always hefty. By letting go, you can at least relinquish the extra penalty of trying to avoid paying it.
When suffering becomes a Fact of life, we suffer less, because we no longer struggle against its inevitability. And life as it is, is as good as it ever could be, the moment we discover that this is so.
