If your life isn't what you want it to be, it is because you want it to be something it is not capable of being-- and are pushing, forcing, shaping, compelling it to be what you want it to be and not cooperating with, listening to, seeing, hearing, knowing, comprehending, assisting, serving, doing what your life wants to be/needs to be. We have to transform our relationship with our life in order to become one with our life, if we want our life to be what it is capable of being within the time and place, conditions and circumstances, of our living. Our life is alive-- or is capable of becoming alive-- when we assist it in a "Thy will, not mine, be done" kind of way. Enter emptiness, stillness and silence as our primary mode of operation in placing ourselves in right relationship with our life, and allowing everything else to fall into place around that. Begin with telling yourself about your current relationship with your life. Describe it, picture it, feel it, imagine it, find metaphors that reflect/exhibit/express it, symbols that stand for it... And begin to listen to what your life is saying to you about how it needs you to live it. How are you living it? How do you need to be living it instead? Your life is your guide. Live it as it needs to be lived. Go where it needs to go. Do what it needs to have done. Amaze yourself with what can happen, even now, even yet, even so.
