Daily Teaching for Monday, February 25th

I have heard many people say, “I just want some control over my life.” Paradoxically, it’s only by relinquishing the fiction of being able to control life and instead learning to accept life as it comes that we achieve happiness.  That doesn’t mean we don’t work to address injustice or right things that are wrong, but it does mean that we recognize that all we can do in any situation is give our best effort. After that, we need to let go of any false belief in being able to control the outcome and live with what is, trusting that everything evolves as it should.
