Often we devote our primary attention to the facts of our lives, to the situation at hand, to our work and status. Most of our energy goes into doing. Many people wonder where they should be and what they should do, when in fact they should be more concerned about how to be.
We can control only what we do and say, what choices we make, what words we say. The rest is up to fate. And so life has positive and negative turns. And rarely do you see them coming.
