Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such. -Henry Miller

Seeming beauty is probably better than just seeming painful and stuff

But I still have vision trouble sometimes finding every golden moment when life keeps pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain

It been a swell ride though mostly when I've remember to recognize it

And I don't mind the sun sometimes

Thanks it's a nice bit of words Mr.Miller gave

Hope it is for you too

A false sense of control leads to the fact that we don't deserve our experience if we deem it a 'bad' experience. The more we hold onto, try to control or manage 'my' life, the harder it will be to realize that in this theater of all passing things, we too must pass. Conditioning and society has made it difficult to accept our own fate and that it will come to an end. By knowing the true Self and knowing who you are and what you are, a discovery takes place that dissolves away the falseness of conditioning. All one has to do is earnestly ask 'Who Am I" Not to answer it, but follow it and see where it leads.
