It all comes down to powerlessness and a relationship with a higher power/something outside of yourself that says you can not control all. You can want things definitely, but at what point does this focus of wanting things steer you away from real human connection? The present moment? Is everyone just using everyone to get what they want?
We are powerless over so many things in our lives I believe it’s more in an individuals best interest to be moved through the world and to be of service to everyone they encounter rather than focusing on their own needs (outside of the obvious essential ones) and self surrounding thoughts… Then it becomes easier to give up that control and maybe, just maybe appreciate people for what they are – fellow lovers, brothers, sisters and humans; not just stepping stones.
