Time to stop looking for shortcuts and time to start insisting on a long, viable path instead.*
When all is simplicity, life appears to be one. Then complexity turns up, things go wrong, tensions rise, choices must be made. How we wish we could return to simplicity. If that wasn’t bad enough, perplexity makes an appearance: things we can’t understand and which resist reconciliation – hurt and pain and suffering.
Harmony is found when we understand all of these are part of the one life, and in an unfathomable-somehow, they make life bigger.
