“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don’t resist them;
that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward
in whatever way they like.”
“Some periods of our growth are so confusing
that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening.
We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical,
or we may feel depressed.
It would never occur to us,
unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us,
that we were in fact in the process of change,
of actually becoming larger,
spiritually, than we were before.
Whenever we grow,
we tend to feel it,
as a young seed must feel the weight
and inertia of the earth
as it seeks to break out of its shell
on its way to becoming a plant.
Often the feeling is anything but pleasant.
But what is most unpleasant
is the not knowing what is happening.
Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting,
holding its breath,
unsure about what the next step should be,
eventually become the periods we wait for,
for it is in those periods
that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life
and that, in all probability,
a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.”
