Make Use of Every Condition

I have been battling with resentment and anger as we tend to two sick kids. My wife seems to be more irascible than the usual and the criticisms and contempt are more pointed.

But, who’s problem is this? Am I going to “fix” her? Does she even need fixing? And, if so, how could that be my concern as the worldling that I am?

If you cannot make use of every condition that arises, both undesirable and desirable, you are in danger of losing the Dharma, and you will never achieve the unsurpassed and lasting happiness of enlightenment.

Excerpt from: “Transforming Problems into Happiness” by Thubten Zopa.
