The Struggle in Our Lives

We are involved in a sense of struggle in our lives. We are trying to defeat somebody or win somebody over, to get rid of an enemy or acknowledge a friend. Whether we live in the city or in the country, we are trying either to fight with our environment or to indulge in it. We are constantly involved with picking and choosing. That is the basic area where orderly chaos is taking place.

From “The Razor’s Edge,” in Orderly Chaos: The Mandala Principle, page 16.
