Life is absurd. It's also precious. Most important, it's what's we've got. I can't change the world, and yet my existence changes the world. The world would be different if I weren't here -- hardly noticeably different, but different. I don't have full control over anything, including myself. I do have some limited power and control to make change in me and the world. It's also true that life does things to me. As I understand, Lao Tzu says we not only do, we are also being done. The situation isn't all or nothing. It's not a matter of I can change the world or I can futilely and hopelessly try and fail. The problem is trying to control and take responsibility for outcome. That is futile. What I can do is act with integrity to my truth, act impeccably, and hope for the best. That practice I believe in. Over time we collectively did create what we have today. I as an individual can't totally change it, but I can do what I can do which adds my piece to the worsening or improving of the situation.
