We are all falling and falling.
The bad news is there is nothing to hold on to.
The good news is that there is nothing to land on.
We try so hard to establish a platform of predictability, reliability and safety but there is nothing to stand on. Life is always changing. We can’t predict what happens next and there is always something that happens next. That hope to establish something that can never be brings us so much suffering. We lose sight on what is actually happening to us, right now, in the moment, while trying to escape the feelings we have.
When something we perceive as “bad” happens, perhaps instead of creating all this drama we can ask ourselves:
What happens next?
