There is a rhythmic undercurrent to life. It can’t really be explained, only sensed. It’s there when we fail. Again, when we’re suffering, and even when we’re smiling or feeling on top of the world. It is definitely a part of the magical realm.
It’s important, perhaps essential to align our goal-related efforts with larger more pervasive concerns. Life itself speaks to us in various ways. Through our dreams, during meditations, life lessons and other experiences.
Rebelling against this stronger “stream of life” may just cause us grief, turmoil, and frustration. Allowing ourselves to flow with the natural current of life can prove fruitful. As long as we are simultaneously being in alignment with our values.
