It is commonly taught that devising a strategy, setting goals or plans is the way to live. At some stage, it may make sense.
Yet, consider the possibility that living a purposeful life has less to do with your efforts to control outcomes and more to do with responding as higher consciousness to what unfolds. Discover that you throw all you encounter at yourself to remind you to love.
Imagine for a moment, that no set plan exists for the journey you are on. You can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone. No limits exist except those you create and believe. In the game of life, the object is to love everything equally and unconditionally. Only then does it grow clear you are love itself reflecting back. Call it Zen, Tao or no-thing. Its always here in everything.
