What You Can Plan is Too Small for You to Live


Power Through Experience...

“a veritable San Andreas Fault in the American psyche: the personality’s wish to have power over experience, to control all events and consequences, and the soul’s wish to have power through experience, no matter what that may be.”

Whyte, David. The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America. New York: Doubleday, 1994. 1-30.

Here is a link to a great summary of a wonderful book, especially for any of us seekers who are, or have been, in the work-world. http://www.shkaminski.com/Classes/Readings/Whyte.htm

The above quote is very revealing and explains a lot about the 'Why are we here?' question. It is easy to see the truth of this quote in all aspects of life, modern or ancient. This, again, outlines the prodigal purpose of life. Read our earlier post on 

The Prodigal Son 

Our personality/intellect/thinking-mind loves the idea of controlling everything but the overriding and overpowering desire of the soul always seems to get its way. We may think we want something but the soul wants the greater power, through experience, that may have nothing to do with what we think. Ever notice that in your life?
