There is an effortlessness that you can witness in nature. Grass does not try to figure out it's purpose, it just is, it doesn't try to grow, it just does. Fish donít try to figure out the stream or it's reason for being a fish, it just swims. Flowers donít question a thing, they just bloom. Nature knows it's meaning in the life process without questioning it, or perhaps it doesn't, yet somehow it fulfills it's purpose anyway, simply by being what it is.
The question then is simply, what makes you feel more alive?
Exactly, everytime we struggle with something we just fail to accept stuff we've already created, that's why crappy stuff hangs around, we deny we created it and then keep denying creation while maintaining the observation of it. A star is a star, grass is grass, you are you, consciousness is consciousness, once you accept what you are, everything seems easier and more enjoyable.
