Is your life filled with anarchy and discord?
They sat life isn't meant to be easy, but it isn't meant to be filled with chaos and near-misses with death either.
The kind of experiences or situations we manage to get ourselves into in our everyday lives should be a clear indicator of how we are progressing in our life, and whether the path we have taken is the correct one or not.
Even if we have ourselves so fully convinced that we are on the right track because we desperately want the specific direction we have chosen to be the correct one, if the universe disagrees with our choices, it will not be shy in telling us so.
I distinctly recall a period of my life where crisis, tragedy and disharmony were commonplace themes and everyday encounters; and the words "chaos," "turmoil" and "drama" seemed to dominate my conversations in describing and recounting my typically average day.
Life had become so catastrophic that any additional bad news, bad luck or bad timing that manifested through the course of the day came as no surprise at all. These were the precarious situations I was finding myself caught up in just about each and every day.
I remember often looking upwards towards the sky and wondering in fearful and dreaded anticipation of what challenging feat the heavens would next throw my way.
At the time, I remember trying hard to recall exactly when and at what stage had my life suddenly become more dramatic and volatile than any daytime soap opera on TV. I knew that my life had not always been chaotic and tumultuous, yet I just couldn't pinpoint when it had so suddenly taken a turn for the absolute worst.
Thankfully, now that that chapter of my life has long concluded, I am now able to recognize where and when circumstances began to work against me, and why.
When we are on the right path towards fulfilling our life purpose, everything and anything seems to fall effortlessly into place along the way. When we are on the wrong path however, nothing ever seems to go right, all efforts and attempts to succeed in our goals are made in vain, and somehow anything that could possibly go wrong, does indeed.
When on the wrong track, the disapproval we will receive from the universe will be anything but subtle! We will experience resistance in the form of events or circumstances we would deem as "unlucky," or "bad/wrong timing."
These are all warning signs from whatever God we believe in, trying to be as overt as the bright red road signs on our highways stating: "WRONG WAY GO BACK" in bold capitals.
We should heed these messages early on, in order to not only save ourselves from having to endure any further warning signs in the form of chaos and misfortune, but so it is easier for us to turn around and go back the way we came and get back onto our actual life path.
