Several months ago I made plans to run in a half marathon in Santa Barbara. So what could possibly go wrong? Two things!
• Unanticipated travel and work
• Less time to train no matter how early I got up
I quickly realized that the matter—less time/more work—wasn’t bigger than my mind’s ability to deal with what shows up, when it shows up. If I take the case that the matter lives inside of me rather than the other way around, then I have a situation to deal with, but the situation doesn’t have me.
