Calm to chaos

The reason for suffering, in all walks of life, is the resistance to life’s inevitable changes.
To have lived is to have changed often. Sometimes this is hard to accept.
What you have today may become what you had by tomorrow. You never know.
Things change, often spontaneously. People and circumstances come and go. Life doesn’t stop for anybody, it moves rapidly and rushes from calm to chaos in a matter of seconds, and happens like this to people every day. It’s likely happening to someone nearby right now.
Sometimes the shortest split second in time changes the direction of our lives. A seemingly innocuous decision rattles our whole world like a meteorite striking Earth.
Entire lives have been swiveled and flipped upside down, for better or worse, on the strength of an unpredictable event, these events are always happening. However good or bad a situation is now, it will change.
That’s the one thing you can count on.
And while you resist change, and suffer sometimes just like everyone else, you have to learn to adapt, you have to learn to be flexible and look for the beauty in life’s changes, even when they aren’t what you want.
