Letting life unfold

Ah! This is dedicated to everyone who is attached to a fantasy about the way things "should" be:

We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

-- Joseph Campbell

How very true. Let go of control and, instead, be willing for life to unfold. It does anyway whether we're willing or not. It's just that our willingness brings us peace and alleviates our suffering. And isn't that, finally, what we all want?
