We need to come to understand that life is also happening to you. You are ‘being-done’ as the Sufi’s used to say. A human life is not a one-sided deal, where we alone get to make all the choices and decisions that will lead us to where we are going. Science and religion are starting to agree that we are all moving towards a place of inner awakening, expanded awareness and consciousness. Whether we like it or not. Life seems to insist on moving us from birth, through life’s challenges, which will include some inevitable suffering, towards a better understanding of ourselves, Creator and Creation and reality itself.
