Let reality be reality

April 22, 2012

Today marks the passing of our beautiful baby two years ago and her life–and death–remind me in a profound way that the events in my life sometimes unfold in ways I do not expect nor can I control.

And, while I remind myself over and over again that “things happen for a reason” I always find myself finding ways to control my surroundings. I would find a great deal of peace if I truly could embrace the Tao. This is my journey–the search for the Way.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them-that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”~Lao Tse Tung
