This also pertains to events in your life that are meant to teach lessons. When you are ready and strong enough to deal with something, it will then appear, but it's up to you in how you react and grow from it.
Often you are in a rush in life. The rush to enjoy robs the joy from life and only denies the freedom of here and now. Often you do not even know why you are in a hurry. It almost becomes a biological phenomenon to be in a rush. Wake up and become aware of the rush in you!
“If you have no mastery over your mind and are influenced and conditioned by habitual tendencies, even in the quiet of an insolated retreat your thoughts will follow one upon another like ripples on water. Memories of past events will well up vividly in your mind – as will plans, decisions, and speculation about your future. You will spend your whole time running after thoughts and concepts, a lot of mental activity with no benefit at all for your practice.” ~ H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
