“Experience is what you get looking for something else.”
-Mary Pettibone Poole, 1938
And many years later, John Lennon said: “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” This is why “going with the flow” is such an important concept for our spiritual growth. We never know what we are going to encounter along the way! Our experiences help to shape our perceptions; they help us to discover more of who we really are. What are we looking for? It doesn’t matterâ€¦ what we find, through our experiences, is ourselves.
