There’s a certain kind of tiredness that signals a necessary and freeing transition in us. It arises out of our need to perpetually push and shove our way through life, causing our path to be strewn with over-deliberate and forcibly chosen decisions, and thus, questionable outcomes.
Life is more like a flowing river than catching the right bus. Discerning and feeling and working within the natural unfolding of life, is a liberating secret. I think this is something of what John Lennon meant when he said, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.” It’s certainly what the Buddhists mean when they say, “When the apple is ripe, it falls of itself from the tree.”
I wish I had learnt this lesson earlier on in life.
