Let’s talk about projection. Not the old way our grandparents used to watch movies, but the way we tend to project our insecurities on those close to us, often seriously damaging our relationships. It’s fairly easy to know when someone is projecting on us. Most likely we feel as though we have been grossly misinterpreted, or that someone’s created a story about us that is completely false.
Our inherent desire to predict and control our world brings us in direct conflict with the impermanent nature of all things. The answer seems to lie in resiliency, namely the ability to adapt to, and even welcome, adversity.
