counter opportunity moments

There are moments of opportunity. When a once-in-a-life-time opportunity comes along and one got to learn how to grab it.

There are moments of weakness. Moments when there does not seem to be a suitable acitons around. When the mind in blurred etc.

Here, a very special ability is to abstain from action. Do nothing and you should be proud of it.

It is very hard, though.

A good example or this are moments of emotional overwhelm. For most of us there are times when the mind does not work very efficiently, when we really do not know what to do. But there the feeling comes that "something must be done/said", and this is a mistake. Alas, one got to be able to hold pain for that, which is another rare skill.

The more I read(Self help stuff), the more it seems everything has been said in the bible, we 'should't fight', but how do you feel when Iran want blow up Israel? Seems that psychology need religion and viceversa then philosophy turns out.

And my question for you, Would you emigrate if there are moments of opportunity?

If the opportunity is good, I would not hesitate.

But I realized that I am connected to the place in psychological and social. Depends on the opportunity.

Honestly, I am not sure the country here will survive in decades, so I consider it safer to be elsewhere.
