When life falls apart, your relationship is in chaos and the cat’s annoying you…

‘…suffering is inevitable for human beings as long as we believe that things last – that they don’t dis-integrate, that they can be counted on to satisfy our hunger for security. From this point of view the only time that we ever know what’s really going on is when the rug is pulled out & we can’t find anywhere to land.’

When things fall apart quote

I have been pondering when things fall apart this week, whether it’s financial, career,

relationships, life in general, our belief in where we are going, family, friendships.

All of it really!

These situations create a tiny death, a feeling that we would rather not experience , something that we resist and may even attempt to stop.

Of course this is not death in the sense of leaving this mortal coil, it’s those tiny jerks that we feel that pull us out of what we are experiencing, into something new. There is the feeling of loss and pain associated with these times in our lives. We can’t protect ourselves from suffering it is inevitable that we will experience varying degrees of it from time to time.
