We have so little trust that life will unfold exactly as it should that we try to micro manage every little detail, expending all our energy creating the illusion that we are in control while reality rolls on, oblivious of our efforts. Imagine what might happen if we took the energy we now spend trying (but failing) to control life and devoted it instead to enjoying life!

I take it this is a reflection on ‘outer’ existence? We HAVE to control our ‘inner’ existence-as in our actions/reactions to the shit in the ‘outer’ existence…or am I missing something here?
Yes, external life, if you will including our interactions with others, the car breaking down, the dog puking on the new carpet, and so on.
