Reflections on how life is in constant motion, with everything arising and then falling again, and how we can find ourselves jamming things up with our grasping and aversion, rather than trusting that things can come back into balance without needing to control it all. Can we learn to flow with this natural waxing and waning of states of mind, pleasure and pain, loss and gain, and renounce the belief that there is a particular thing that will give us permanent happiness ?
