I think at our core we know, we do not choose everything. And it’s unnerving in a world where there’s so much choice, that there are some things beyond our control. It’s often when we resist the flow, that struggle happens. This can be a good experience. Because it’s as though our lessons were built into our failures by design. Our failure to let go produces angst, discomfort, tension, suffering. This is okay too. In fact, this is our privilege of being human. That we can choose to go against the flow, against nature. We can will our way to power…perhaps only to learn the cost. Being God ain’t easy. But we get a chance at it. We’re trusted to do our best with it. We experience grace, forgiveness, love. All the riches of life.
