A basic principle to live by is to open your heart to 'what is' instead of insisting that life be a certain way. This idea is important because much of our internal strugle stems from our desire to control life.
a simple man with simple needs! why go around the bush if u will end with the same crap!!! Many of us spend most of our time thinking of the past, brooding on the bad experiences, dwelling on past laurels, or planning, looking forward to and worrying about the future. That was bad, I wish it didn't happen. I shouldn't have done that. That was good, wish I could have it again. Wow itwas wonderful, let me live through it in my mind again and again. Something good is coming, can't wait. Once it comes, life would be better. Oh dear something bad is approaching, what should I do, how should I handle it.Things are fine now, will something go wrong soon? The list goes on. In doing all that, we are making the big mistake of losing what is the most important of them all - the present. What's past is over. We can't change it. Enjoy the sweet memories. Let the bad experiences be a valuable lesson to us. Learn from them. Plan for the future. But don't dwell too much on it. Life is unpredictable,
