When things fall apart

If we are willing to give up hope that insecurity and pain can be exterminated, then we can have the courage to relax with the groundlessness of our situation. This is the first step on the path.
by Pema Chödrön

goodbye hope and fear
welcome hopelessness and confidence
goodbye seeking pleasure and avoiding pain
welcome impermanence and change
