Life is a struggle. How much more then is the spiritual life, the fight to remain conscious in an illusory world where deviant forces vie for control more than caring, battering your very body and soul day in and day out on top of your struggle to survive. Oh, we’re going peacefully downstream in the more subtle conscious dimensions. There we learn to let go and follow the flow of the Universe and synchronicity. But even there things are being affected and it’s harder to maintain focus and calm.
