Our human, egoic mind really wants to believe that if we do everything just right- say the perfect affirmations, read all the right books, do everything the way it "ought" to be done, that our lives will be happy, chirpy, rainbows and lollipops every day. In Truth, that doesn't seem to be the way things are. Sometimes life hurts. Sometimes we don't know what to do. Sometimes we just need to breathe ourselves through it with faith that we can.
