Riding GOD's Waves

I know there's pain.
Why do lock yourself up in these chains?
No one can change your life except for you.
Don't ever let anyone step all over you.
Just open your heart and your mind,
is it really fair to feel this way inside

(Hold On, Wilson Phillips)

Do you really see what is? Or do you perhaps see what you want to see? Are you on a subconscious journey that you only understand in hindsight, or are you perhaps consciously going after what you want? 
Do what you must! If you have something to prove at work, do it. Or if you find that love has left you empty-handed, go out and seek the partner who completes you. If you feel something else is missing from your life, go and get it! A spiritual journey is also a trip towards wholeness in which we feel totally comfortable in our skin. And sometimes we have to work a little to go where we feel we belong.

Walking the WAY is about waking up one day and smelling the coffee. It is the realization that everything we ever wanted, we already have. We are on a journey that is about disentangling ourselves from biological and psychological drives that up to this point were simply beyond us. Up to this point we mostly followed our drives compulsively, but now it dawns on us that we are the creator behind all of this. Jonatan Martensson put it well when he said, "Feelings are much like waves. We can't them stop them from coming, but we can decide which ones to surf." And Eckhart Tolle reminds us that there is an observer behind our thoughts. Fact of the matter is, we can awaken to a CREATIVE POWER behind all the compulsion. And we can be part of IT.

There is stuff that is pleasurable - like intoxication for example - but we decide to sit it out because it cuts into our creative expression. There is also stuff that is painful but we do it anyhow because it helps us removing our chains. Life is our teacher what is of GOD and what isn't. It is like we get in shape, and are able to ride GOD's magnificent waves. 

Mistakes are meaningless along the TAO because this FORCE is in constant communication with us and we can immediately adjust direction in response. All goals and drives melt away in HER PRESENCE, except for the overriding desire to just hang out with HER, and frolicking along the divine waves that come our WAY.
