Most of the time, we’re thinking and living from the surface, instead of living from the spirit.
Living from the spirit requires us to expose ourselves to others and to face judgment for being different. You’re going to be judged, no matter what, so you might as well be your true…
You’ll be tempted to follow the crowd. To not go your own way. Going your own way seems riskier. And sometimes it is. It may cause you to lose some relationships. It may invite criticism and persecution. It may require you to leave some money on the table. Maybe a lot of money.
One of the reasons we sometimes lose a sense of meaning in life is we’re often too self-focused. We have our mind on ourselves and our problems too often. And we want our circumstances, and the meaning of life itself, to meet our expectations.
