Every experience we have is a building block toward what we want in our lives. If we can embrace everything that happens, we can relax and follow our natural path to growth.
Have you seen a child playing with blocks? They are mesmerized by all the different shapes, colors, and sizes of each block.
They take each block in their hand, looking at it closely with wonder. Some blocks will be their favorites, but they will soon let it go and continue playing with the others if even a favorite one rolls away. They start experimenting with the blocks, piling block upon block to make different designs. If one block doesn't fit, they reach for another.
When their creations fall, they might frown and show a transient expression of disappointment, but then they realize it just means they can build a bigger one. Once they see that all towers eventually fall over, they will happily knock over their creations themselves to create new ones.
