Life happens intentionally despite appearances. There is nothing random about each moment, each experience and each expression; life results from a series of events, a chain reaction of outcomes; a reaction.
Our lives are influenced by people and conditions and the people and conditions in our lives are influenced by our scripts and stories. So ultimately we have the power to rearrange or to remove these characters by rewriting the script.
Each day I am reminded of the closely guarded rules and conditions that we have established in our lives. We are on guard watching for any thought or idea that may come along and possibly alter that paradigm. Most often we go running to the safety of our own mental prison.
We each live a life of immense distractions. This is however an incredibly necessary component in the human game. Distractions create somewhat of an amusement park fun house effect much like the house of mirrors.
While change is inevitable we still find ourselves in resistance to it. Particularity when we are faced with making changes that seems to be in our own hands. Perhaps we become more resistant because there is a sense of powerlessness or control over the change that will or will not occur.
