We all face situations that call for a response from us. Some are serious situations, some are recurring situations, some are trivial, some are life changing... Our place is to know what is called for and to respond as well as we can out of the gifts of our original nature and the innate virtues/specialties that are outs from birth, doing what needs to be done the way only we can do it, situation after situation, dealing with what arises in a day, day after day, and letting that be that. That is all Jesus and the Buddha did, and it is all that is asked of each of us. We all get up and meet the day, and do there what is called for, and do it again tomorrow. There is a certain rhythm and flow to meeting the day, knowing what is called for, doing what we can as best we can, and doing it again tomorrow. If we can just meet the day without expectations and opinions, agendas and plans getting in the way-- without trying to make the day do what we want it to, and, instead, do what the day needs from us-- things go better, more smoothly, in a gentler, kinder, kind of way. And the emotional stress that goes with striving to wrestle the day into what we want it to be, diminishes and disappears, as we just dance with the day, seeing what it needs from us and doing what is needed, day by day.
