Our circumstances call us forth in response to what is being asked for there. Our relationship to our circumstances ranks in degree of importance equal to our relationship with ourselves and to our relationships with other people. We would do well to do an internal evaluation of our relationships with these three aspects of our life in a recurring and regular way. What is the quality of those relationships? How much effort do we extend exerting and maintaining control over them? What are we conscious of trying to achieve in each of them? What are we trying to achieve in our life? How do we know how we are doing? I do a balance and harmony check several times a day, and keep an eye on my emotional fluctuation throughout the day, examining the cause, the degree, the nature and the history of the emotion I'm experiencing, and what that has to say about my stake in the situation at hand-- and how that serves as a mirror reflecting me to me and enabling me to make adjustments and alterations in my desires and expectations, assumptions and needs, and what changes that implies for the way I live in maintaining my balance and harmony and my ability to respond appropriately to my circumstances. The things we discover about ourselves by simply watching how we respond to the day, each day, leads us along the way.
