Creating problems...

Here are two interesting statements by Alan Watts:
At times almost all of us envy the animals. They suffer and die, but do not seem to make a "problem" of it.
If we live, we live; if we die, we die; if we suffer, we suffer; if we are terrified, we are terrified. There is no problem about it.
Maybe it would be helpful to practice simply experiencing what we experience and give ourselves permission not to frame difficulties as "problems". At least not all of them...
