How do life’s obstacles deter or dominate you?

“The obstacles that can arise from both good and bad circumstances should never deter us or dominate us. We should be like the earth, which supports all living beings, without regard to distinctions of good or bad, favorable orunfavorable. The earth simply abides. When faced with difficult situations, a practitioner should use them as an opportunity to strengthen his practice, just as a strong wind, rather than extinguishing a bonfire, intensifies it and causes it to blaze even more brightly.”
~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche~
