Is life a struggle?
A madly dancing Dervish?
Is life a thrust, a challenge thrown down to the rest of existence; I’m going to get mine!
Is life a chasing after the heart attack that you’re about to have while recovering from the one you just had?
Opposed to struggle is rest.
But rest brings poverty.
How can you get ahead if you are not in the race?
But rest has already won the race.
Rest allows one time to count your friends.
Assess your blessings.
Quantify your needs and measure them against your wants.
Weigh value against amount.
Struggle may triumph over rest, if you wish.
Rest is willing, however, to marry, temper and guide struggle.
Soften the jagged edges.
Make less into more.
