Adjustment and compromise, Kid. Adjustment and compromise. It is the way. Noise, complexity, drama are always right there disturbing the flow, disrupting the groove, interfering with our ability to see, hear, know, do what needs to be done here/now. Doing what needs to be done here/now is the only thing that needs to be done. Get that down, and everything falls nicely into place around it. To get that down, we have to first put noise, complexity and drama in their place, which is far out beyond the periphery of life as it needs to be lived. It starts with recognizing noise, complexity and drama for what they are, and shutting the door, or walking away. If you have lost your balance and harmony and don't know where to find them, you are besieged by noise, complexity and drama, and don't have a minute's worth of peace and quiet anywhere in your day or night. It's time to reclaim your life. See what needs to be done. And do it. Saying NO! to noise, complexity and drama. Try it and you will feel so empty, the wrong kind of empty, filled with all the inner turmoil that keeps the right kind of empty away. Our life is so filled with noise, complexity and drama that we don't know what to do without it. Start with the TV. Cut. It. Off. Oops, now what? See what I mean? Sit quietly, identifying the sources of noise, complexity, drama in your life. Quietly, show them the door, and shut it behind them as they exit the scene, every scene. At first, the transition is unsettling. In time, it becomes the source of light, and life, and being. And we enter a world where "Anything can happen if we let it," and "The future is up to us and how we deal with the present." And emptiness (The right kind), stillness and silence become traveling companions on the path that cannot be discerned as a path, and is, therefore, a reliable path, for being with the wind that blows where it will.
