What is our birth right?

JP has shared this quote from FB; worth a deep thought..(thanks JP!)
"As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel
that we deserve resolution. However, not only do we not deserve
resolution, we suffer from resolution. We don't deserve resolution; we
deserve something better than that. We deserve our birthright, which
is the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox
and ambiguity. To the degree that we've been avoiding uncertainty,
we're naturally going to have withdrawal symptoms--withdrawal from
always thinking that there's a problem and that someone, somewhere, needs to fix it." ~ Pema Chodron, "When Things Fall Apart"
