It occurred to me one day that maybe I was so focused on what was straight ahead of me, and on what I wanted that I might be missing important stuff that's outside my range of focus. And that maybe I was so self-directed that I wasn't leaving any room to partner, so to speak, with a greater energy. So I decided to back off, be still, and pay attention. So far it's worked pretty well. There were a couple of problems I'd be attempting to unsuccessfully resolve over a couple of months. When I decided not to have THE TALK, not to intervene, both issues resolved themselves very nicely, much to my surprise. I'm thinking this is something close to moving out of resistance to what is, and notice that when I move out of resistance, I'm much happier. Maybe it's just the resistance itself that causes unhappiness, not the circumstances, I don't know. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think about this, especially if you have something uplifting or instructive to say.
