What do you want to change exactly ?
Do you want to change how things are ? or do you want to change how you see or think things are ?

sometimes I believe in this idea, but everytime I think I see the world and people with good eyes...I feel disappointed later, because some bad thing happens. So, maybe this idea is not true...

I am ok with everything, I am not resisting to what is anymore.
I was just observing this is a pattern, since I was very young.
So maybe I have to change something..

I think deep inside i always knew I would feel this pain.
Do you think deep inside we know how our life will be, how things will happen?
I was so young and the fear and sadness were already there...
How can you say "I am ok with everything, I am not resisting to what is anymore." and at the same time "So maybe I have to change something" ? This appears contradictory, no ?
When everything is ok, nothing needs to be 'changed' ... which does not mean "do nothing", you can do anything you love, but you don't do this to change things ... you do this because you love to do it ... there is no goal, no intention ... in fact no 'doer' even ...

I do not believe some people is capable to do this when in constant contact with their wishes, with people and things happening around.. Maybe it is accomplished when you are isolated in a mountain...or meditating alone...but in the middle of everything??
