There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages
that holds the key to breaking our
cycle of self-imposed suffering.
The secret wisdom is, "Life is not supposed to be fair."

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."

A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger.
He fled, the tiger after him.
Coming to a precipice,

and swung himself over the edge.
The tiger sniffed at him from above.
Trembling, the man looked down to where,
far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him.
Only the vine sustained him.
Two mice, one white and one black,

Grasping the vine with one hand,
he plucked the strawberry with the other.
How sweet it tasted.
