If we pay attention to our preferences, we’ll realize that they are not our preferences; we haven’t consciously chosen them. They are just there as if they are life’s preferences. It’s as if life wants to experience itself in a particular way through us. And when we allow it to by following our preferences, we experience joy. And when we don’t allow it, we experience resistance.
Probably, respecting our innate preferences is respecting the life itself. And within that respect lies our joy and fulfillment. Isn’t it?
