Ouch!

How much do we have to give up before we realise the truth of what we have?
Loss of health through injury or disease, sudden unemployment or financial ruin, vicious wars, throw open the door to that discovery. Pain of all sorts sounds the alarm, but, in a strange way, it is also the forerunner of Change. No one willingly goes towards Change for its own sake: rarely do you hear the words, “I am going to live my life completely differently from today on”.
New Year’s resolutions are half-hearted attempts to cut into the predictability of our existence; but generally the pronouncements never work, for without making a real search for natural Truth, or listening intently for that crystalline ping, which confirms the rightness of what will happen, sudden pain would appear to be the most consistent signal that nothing will be the same again.
