When I was younger, I wanted to change the world.
I must be older now.
More and more, I find that my work is to accept the world exactly the way that it is.
The American dream promises that there is somewhere to go and something to do.
But there isn’t.
We are already there and it’s already as good as it’s going to get.
There is deep wisdom in accepting the fact that this is how it all turned out. That’s what I call personal freedom. Allowing this world to be exactly the way that it is.
Because it is.
