Here is how most of us live life.
We set a goal for ourselves and then take appropriate action to reach that goal.
When things do not go our way, we work harder. We put our ‘nose to the grindstone’ and try to remember that ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going.’
Our lives are full of struggle as we tot up our accomplishments.
This is just the nature of life, right?
Well, maybe not.
I am reading The Surrender Experiment
by Michael Singer. Singer is the author of The Untethered Soul
and I think so highly of it that it appears in the life-changing books section of the syllabus for my program.
Singer describes a phase in his life when he was so tired of his mental chatter that he was spending virtually all his time in deep meditation. His description of his life then is eerily similar to that of Ramana Maharshi when he first came to the temple at Tiruvannamalai and simply meditated in the cavernous rooms in the many-level temple basement.
