We want life to be simple and for things to be exactly as they appear, for our journey to be a series signs directing us to turn right and left, speed up and slow dow. Unfortunately this is rarely the case. The world communicates in a subtle whisper. If we interpret and react to everything literally, we are prone to keep repeating the same mistakes over and over. We need to look past the surface of the sounds and symbols around us. What happens to us does so for a reason, but it is usually not the reason we think.
