Excerpt from the author:
"Well-being is like a wide channel through which our life flows. It's big enough to hold all our experiences, including our highs and lows, and everything in between, without judgement or resistance.
It's like a riverbed-mostly unseen, but critically important. The riverbed provides a welcome container for all of life, and as a rule, it doesn't eject anything out. In fact, each component held within the riverbed is seen as necessary-as part of creating the larger picture. The curling eddies, the fish hovering at the sides, the debris floating downstream-they all belong inside the riverbed.
Well-being is the same. When we're in our riverbed of well-being, we become big enough to hold everything with the courage to say, 'I am willing for all of this to be my life.' "
