Nature doesn’t care — it devours everything and moves on. The problem becomes when we try to control it.
Like the mind, the more we try to alleviate tension in the world around us, the worse it gets.
We are not directors of the environment. “It’s really the wand that chooses the wizard,” as J.K. Rowling writes in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
We can’t rule nature. The force is too strong.
Instead of seeking to dismantle our surroundings, it would behoove us to make the most of the opportunities that come our way and adapt to the circumstances accordingly.
It is never an escape from the conditions but an expansion of our comfort zone.
