It seems to me that one of the odd paradoxes of life is our ability to control nothing and everything at the same time.
We have no control over all the external things in our lives, yet we have complete control over ourselves and our attitude and this attitude is what attracts and brings about the external environment we desire.
I suppose that life is a balancing act between mastery of our own mind and letting the rest of life happen.
