We’re tied down by physical/societal necessities, so in order to follow our dreams, we must be strategic. Sometimes it works to just leap—live in your car/risk your life/etc—and if your spirit is honed, and your ego is tame, then for that instance, you will be carried. But eventually, the ability to apply discipline and critical thinking MUST be learned. Because in the end, the “drudgeries,” and “miraculous manifestations,” are both applications of consciousness. And I believe that once we’re fluent in ALL such applications, then we will [as/trans]cend to new and more brilliant planes.
