It’s really interesting because we get to decide how we frame, and what we want our response to be to any situation. There’s a great book by Michael Singer called the surrender experiment. He talks about the notion that the universe has more in store for you than you can imagine. Many times if we look at what is an obstacle, setback or a struggle in that frame or paradigm, then we can see that there’s a reason for it. I look at joy as our GPS as we have in our lives. We’re attracted to joy. We’re living in joy. And think we either grow through joy or pain. I look at pain as the guard rails on either side on our way to joy. Those guards rails can be pretty narrow. We’re in alignment with what our joy is and how were truly connected with our heads, hearts, and higher purpose. Or the guard rails could be wider and we continue to get bonked on the head harder and harder. I think that we keep getting lessons and get bonked on the head until we realize what’s going on here. – Yanik Silver
