Hard work is not always rewarding

Me:
It is kind of sad… – to have been brought up in the illusion of “Seek and you will find” and “Hard work is always rewarding” as this wrong delusional conduct has drained me so throughout these years…It is sad as it feels as if the dominating commandments with which I grew up with, have done nothing but taught me how to fail…

Tom:
What I consciously pursue always seems not enough. What I treasure simply comes to me. The natural, effortless path leads often to the most exquisite of destinations.

Not so much random, I think. When we are open and just being, not striving, everything in that moment is right there. What we seek, we will not find. To be simply open and ready. Even in something active, like writing. When you let your words just flow, you are there.

It’s a wondrous thing.

Me:
I hear the space between your words here.
You confirm what I secretly consider being “the truthful way” of calm insight and joy in
action. Cause when action is right and true, it is inherently beneficial and soothing as that action is simultaneous non action. It’s acting with no ego.

The door of grace opens unobtrusively, pushing and knocking at it, is but futile undertaking.

As you say, Flow is effortless…
