“Change is the only constant in life. It is the one thing we can count on. Most human suffering comes from resisting change. We either resist new things from entering or familiar things from leaving, and in this resistance we struggle. Resisting the inevitable, we become entrapped in our limited ideas of how things should be. Genuine peace is not dependent upon things being a certain way, because inevitably they will change and peace will be disturbed.
From a spiritual perspective, freedom from attachment to a particular outcome is the ultimate expression of liberation. We can choose the actions we take, but we cannot control the consequences of our choices. Freedom is expanded by focusing our energies on the options available and making choices that have the greatest chance of increasing peace and happiness in our lives.”
David Simon, in”The Ten Commitments”
