Every moment you live now is a new page in the story

After years of making war against the way things are, I finally realized that life is a story that takes its sweet ass time unraveling itself. 

All situations unfold regardless of how we feel about them, irrespective of our precious agendas, expectations and judgments. 

Surrendering to this reality is actually quite liberating. Because it helps us believe that there is wisdom in the unfolding of events exactly as they are. It encourages us to align ourselves with those events as they are happening, in real time. And it asks us to trust that whatever we’re gaining from this experience is perfect for our growth. 

The problem is, this surrendered approach to life runs crosswire to the grain of modern culture. Most people aren’t willing to carve out time for an emotional state that the rest of the world is suspicious of. Most people aren’t willing to accept that everything is perfect exactly as it is. 

The neighbors would whisper. 

After all, we live in a hyper impulsive, quick fix culture. Patience isn’t taught or rewarded. Humans have been primed for immediate gratification, and if we don’t have to wait, we won’t. 

And so, if you like the idea of watching the universe unfold at your feet, be ready for resistance. 

Not just from yourself, but from the world around you. 


If everything is perfect exactly as it is, what is it that you are not seeing?
