I find that one of the most important aspects in dealing with other people and life is to "let it come to me".

What's that mean? I think a tremendous amount of energy is expended by people trying to direct and influence interactions and outcomes in their favor. We try to predict and preempt, scheme and out-wit and in the end sometimes get the result we want, but more often than not, fall short.

But if we're able to accept the world as it is and people as they are and let them come to us without interference, then that will increase intimacy with others and the world.

(Just don't read the thread, "What is Karma", because I didn't do a very good job of following my own advice there.)
