What's Going On Here?

While working on the concept for a fictional story based on The Tunnel Under Thesis, the following question was raised:
Why do people like to struggle through life?

She wrote to me:

BUT DO YOU THINK WE HAVE TO PUT THE LEAD MALE AT A YOUNG EXPLORATORY AGE... THAT WOULD MERIT A JOURNEY? I THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE AT A MATURE STATE BEFORE PURSUING OTHER PEOPLE, SUCH AS, OUR DEAR DO-GOODER. BUT, WOULD THAT MAKE THE STORY TOO BORING? OH... SUCH QUESTIONS. -SARAH


I replied:

Hehehe... exactly. People like the journey to be a struggle... in which the star... overcomes the struggle... and triumphs... at the climax of the story.

Why? I dunno... seems silly to want to struggle. I found the quickest, most effective advancement... through avoiding the personal struggles... and listening to the simple way.

But, I guess I'm the oddball?


To which she replied:

IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT YOU ARE THE ODDBALL, BUT THIS "SIMPLE WAY YOU SPEAK OF ISN'T ALWAYS CLEARLY BEFORE US. BY THE WAY, WHAT IS SIMPLE WAY?


I replied:

The secret to the simple way is... that there is no secret. I simply listen.

Most people talk to God... or perhaps it is better described as "most people talk at God."

I attempt to keep my mouth shut... and listen to Her.

Though "it" is hard to put into words... it is kinda like swimming in a river... have you ever done that?

The water itself... is colorless... odorless... tasteless... etc. (kinda like God)

Yet, it delivers quite a force.

Unfortunately, most everyone that I meet fits into 1 of 2 categories:

  1. afraid to swim in the river of life... they just stand on the river bank watching life go by.
  2. struggle to swim against the current... a struggle that is self defeating.

You sure look like you're swimming in the river... but, will you try to swim against the current?

Or, will you work with the current... become one with it?


To which a good Samaritan interjected:

you experience such good karma, ripening from previous lifetimes,
that your journey has been as you describe -
i found the quickest, most effective advancement... through avoiding the personal struggles... and listening to the simple way.
this is due to lots and lots and lots and lots of struggle and swimming against the current and not getting in the river and oh lawrd so much worse for soooooooo long, and finally, finally, you got it right, almost...
now your assignment is to Sir Vent, help others, entice their minds,
be humble and grateful, help in every way you can think, as well as
to proceed with the journey... once beings realize what you have realized then the work can begin, then one can use every moment,
waking, sleeping, contemplating, meditating, and so on, to really really really achieve the final aim, the great completion...


To which I replied:

Hehehe... I was thinkin'... how I kinda feel like a lifeguard... not able to swim too far downstream... 'for I gotta pull annuder one out.

hehehe
