that holds the key to breaking our

God has not failed, died, or gone on vacation.
The world is working perfectly. We just misunderstood.

life was "supposed" to be "fair,"
and all the trouble started -
expectation, disappointment, resentment, anger -
a whole cycle of suffering that began
with the belief that life is "supposed" to be "fair."

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.
