Take it standing up and ask them if that's the best they got. You can do it with the right perspective, attitude, frame of mind. Perspective is a super power, transforming everything and transforming us to deal appropriately with everything. There is nothing that the right perspective can't improve. Step into your life with the right perspective, and watch things fall right into place around that. It is amazing what perspective can do. But don't take my word for it. Pull out your own perspective and shine that baby up. Put the "Nothing can happen to me that I can't improve by the way I think about it" to it, and take it around the block a time or two. And then take it on the road. See what happens. You'll be amazed.
Alan Watts asked Joseph Campbell, "Joe, What form does your yoga take?" Campbell replied, "I underline passages." Yoga is looking/seeing. What form does YOUR yoga take? I also underline passages, and look out the window, and take photographs, and mull things over, and ask the questions that beg to be asked, and say the things that cry out to be said, and do the things that need to be done-- when, where and how they need to be done-- in each situation as it arises, no matter what, with nothing it it for me beyond the joy of doing it and the satisfaction of having done it. And seeing arises of its on accord in its own time, in its own way. Mixed motives kill seeing. You cannot be looking to see and looking for what is in it for you. There may be a monetary reward in seeing, but it is beside the point, a secondary consideration. I occasionally sell a photograph. I do not take a picture with marketing it in mind. If you are looking for the wrong thing, you will not see what is there. Columbus was looking for India, spices and cities of gold, fountains of youth, and the northwest passage, and never appreciated what he found. If you want to see, you have to look with innocence, integrity, sincerity, spontaneity from the heart, to see what is there. And be enjoying the search.
The Dalai Lama said, on the Chinese occupation of Tibet, “If, in any situation, there is no solution, there is no point in being anxious. If the forces at work have their own momentum, and what’s going on now is the product of what went before, and if this generation is not in control of all those forces, then this process will continue.” He is saying we have to know what we can do and what we cannot do, what can be done and what cannot be done. He is saying we cannot will what cannot be willed. And that some things have to play themselves out over time. Everything plays itself out over time. The pendulum swings according to its own pleasure. And when we have done all we can do, we have to wait for the tide to turn. The tide always turns in its own time.
