If I work hard enough I’ll get there. If I earn that college degree, I’ll have my dream job. I have to be careful to do whats right…I don’t want to fuck up. God knows, if my life is shitty, it’s because I fucked up somewhere. It’s all my fault, right? After all…I am the one in control, right?…
What do we really have control over?
We try to control our finances, our neighbors, our pets.
We rail against the government, the IRS, and mainstream media.
When we realize that we are wasting all of our energy trying to control that which is out of our control,
we may start to realize that the only thing that is ours to control
is our reaction to the present moment…and maybe not even that.
After all, when was the last time you controlled your own heartbeat?
