And Life . . .
Even though, the Good Book reiterates that:
Sometimes life has an annoying habit of derailing even the best-laid plans.
So when things go awry, instead of blaming self or others consider remembering that something profound may be underway. Try to change the way you live your life, instead of trying to change your life.
Your repeated failed attempt to ‘fit the mold,’ might be a telltale of the deepest part of your hidden life pushing for new growth and expression. Trust it. Outside the box is where new life is waiting. Remember the old adage, "Don't put new wine in an old wine skin.”
Life is Not Supposed to be Complicated . . .
When we understand the teachings of Jesus and live our life by following the Wisdom of God reside in us and also commune with us, we would know that there no place for zero-sum mentality - 'for every gain there is a loss'.
Since we're running our own race and no competition is involved, the mindset that hinges on the notion that 'there must be one winner and one loser' is not in sync with "The Abundant Life or Kingdom Living" that Jesus thought.
Although it’s notable to be hardworking, ‘whoever does not work should not eat’ - trying to quench our trust of righteousness, peace, love and joy with all sort of things like fame, fortune, perfectionism and achievement is a predicament.
Because the works of each person will be tested by fire and the fire reveal the character and the worth of the work each one has done. 1 cor. 3:13.
We heard that "Life is a Journey not a Destination" meaning a journey matters more than a destination, because after a destination another journey begins or vise versa meaning no end till we croak.
Paying attention or not being oblivious to every journey means we create our reality instead of a default reality.
