It All Goes Wrong Anyway
By Ajahn Brahm
Wherever you live—in a monastery, in a city, or on a quiet tree-lined street—you will always experience problems and difficulties from time to time. This is just the nature of life.
So when you have problems with your health you shouldn’t say, “Doctor, there is something wrong with me—I’m sick”; rather, you should say, “There is something right with me—I’m sick today.”
It’s the nature of the human body to be sick now and again. It’s also the nature of the septic system to need pumping out when you don’t expect it, and it’s the nature of the water heater to sometimes break down. It’s the nature of life to be this way.

We envision a world in which people treat each other with respect and kindness, where we consider the Earth to be our home to care for and to enjoy. And we see that this world is in the process of emerging. Positive News is a reflection of this widespread movement and tells its powerful stories.
