The Not so Great State

The not-so-comfortable is good.

It's that place I find myself in a good part of the time -- not extremely happy...not extremely depressed...just so so.

Maybe I'm a little restless, a little groundless.

This is a good place, because if I can stay in this state in comfort, without seeking to escape, I can learn to be more at ease with myself. I don't have to escape these feelings. They're just as much a part of my human existence as is being happy.

And if I can be more at ease with myself, I can be more compassionate with others.
