Last week’s post included this quote from The Art of Happiness: A Handbook for Living by the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler: “Without cultivating a pliant mind, our outlook becomes brittle and our relationship to the world becomes characterized by fear. But by adopting a flexible, malleable approach to life, we can maintain our composure even in the most restless and turbulent conditions. It is through our efforts to achieve a flexible mind that we can nurture the resiliency of the human spirit.”
After reading this post, Patricia Katz sent me this insightful comment:
“Not getting too attached to an elusive and imaginary status quo – now that is indeed the central challenge of change!”
Pat has a wealth of excellent and thoughtful articles on balancing our busy lives and giving ourselves “permission to pause” at http://www.pauseworks.com/library/articles.php.
