Does a relationship survive and thrive by you insisting on getting your own way, or does it happen by crucifying your ego?
Is life better when good things come our way unexpectedly, or when we try to force it?
We all want to truly live, but we don’t want to die to get there. That’s what it takes to truly live — giving up our life so we can gain it.
We want to know the truth. We want to know the Way. But we don’t really want to pay the price. That, takes some persuasion. God/life persuades us by frustrating our selfish ambitions. Mainly by not allowing those ambitions to fulfill us.
