After citing Barnhart's profound statement that "We humans prefer a manageable complexity to an unmanageable simplicity," David McKee seems to say what we humans really go after is complex instability that turns out to also be unmanageable rather than go after unmanageable simplicity. He seems to emphasize that trying to control our experience ruins our living, and I definitely agree with that. There is a stability and instability, hospitality and inhospitality, in nature and in us, see it or not, that we can turn toward and accept, and our trying to control nature and life creates greater instability and inhospitality. I often relax and welcome the ceaseless stream of unexpected opportunities. My long time mantra has been process, not outcome. When I live that mantra, life is alive, full of surprise, and satisfying. What helps me practice acting consciously and mindfully is finding that it is rewarding.
