Whatever is in front of you today, that’s what you need to deal with. There is no point waiting for another life to come along.
‘Whatever you meet is the path.’ To practice this slogan is to know that no matter what is going on – no matter how distracted you think you are, no matter how much you feel like a terribly lazy individual who has completely lost track of her good intentions and is now hopelessly astray – even then you have the responsibility and the ability to take all negativity, bad circumstance, and difficulty and turn it into the path. You are constantly being found, whether you know it or not.
