Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, but it does seem that each life comes with its hardships and its joys.  And recognizing this allows one to perhaps have a more satisfying life.  Here is another view from the Tao:

Do you want to improve the world?
I don't think it can be done.

The world is sacred.
It can't be improved.
If you tamper with it, you'll ruin it.
If you treat it like an object, you'll lose it.

There is a time for being ahead,
a time for being behind;
a time for being in motion,
a time for being at rest;
a time for being vigorous,
a time for being exhausted;
a time for being safe,
a time for being in danger.

The Master sees things as they are,
without trying to control them.
She lets them go their own way,
and resides at the center of the circle.
