Our problem with frustration is actually a problem with beliefs. Frustration = resistance. It’s not just disagreement between your beliefs and reality. It’s effort on your part to deny, resist and act as if your belief was real, and when we do that can we keep our focus on the original spirit of that belief? Can we resist a conditions reality and make our belief manifest?
We can know peace without frustration when we understand frustration for what it is, and let that inform us about human nature. Then we can choose how to find balance within ourselves. Take this life that was always yours and know that you do know what to do. Trust the higher order by whatever name you call it that didn’t do you any harm by letting you be here.
“Life is not an easy matter… You cannot live through it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness.” Leon Trotsky (Russian Communist theorist and agitator, a leader in Russia’s October Revolution in 1917. 1879-1940)
“Being frustrated is disagreeable, but the real disasters in life begin when you get what you want” Irving Kristol
