I remember working on the oil rigs, 12 hour shifts outside on a steel deck. Needless to say, it was damaging my knees.
What I came to realize though, is that by putting good soles beneath my feet, the deck got soft as nature.
It is not possible to control all external events. But if you simply control your mind, what need is there to control outer things?
By strengthening your mind through meditation, no matter what outer circumstances is thrown your way, you will always have inner peace and awareness.
