It is interpreted oddly.
To be able to be unhurried when hurried;To love your life is to allow it to dissolve with and through and in others.
To be able not to slack off
When relaxed; to be able not to be
Frightened and at a loss for what to
Do when frightened and at a loss;
This is the learning that returns us
To our natural state and
Transforms our lives.
- Liu Wenmin (early 16th cent)
To hate your life is to take that life you hate with its judgments and unhappiness and harming with you into eternity.
Not a happy prospect.
Where Fear EndsEarth is good. Body is good. You are good.
Fear is finding fault with the future. If only we could keep in mind how uncertain our future is, then we would never try to predict what could go wrong. Fear ends right there.
–Ajahn Brahm from Opening the Door of Your Heart (Lothian Books)
Lose your life. It's not yours. It belongs with God, who is everywhere.
Transform your life.
