There are so many angles that it's easy to become entangled and discouraged. That's also why we need to have courage so that we won't be buried or beaten by the things that threaten and intimidate. It's simply a matter of enduring what we cannot change. In doing so, courage arises and we are often surprising even to ourselves. Yet how many of us are willing to die this kind of death until we are reborn, and no longer captive to the norm? That's what I ask when I hear so many bask in the glow of others' success. It's okay to applaud them but we shouldn't defraud ourselves.
