Paradox - Life is a mystery;
don't waste your time trying to figure it out
Humour - Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself.
It is a strength beyond all measure
Change - Know that nothing ever stays the same.
Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior
Dan Millman is one of my favourite authors and I love this quote.
We all come with our own destiny and path. We may have a gut feel about the events that are to occur but we probably won't figure out how, when and where. If life isn't a mystery, there would be no fun in discovering it. So go with the flow.
Humour can diffuse a tense situation. Noticed how those who can laugh at themselves are the ones people want to be with. As they say, laugh and the world laughs with you; weep and you weep alone.
Change is constant (an oxymoron). Good times do not stay forever, nor do the bad times. Expect change and embrace it. It's when we resist change, that things become difficult. If life did not change constantly, it would be extremely dull.
