You are a vehicle for what wants to happen, not for what you want to happen.– Adyashanti
That’s true even from a (more considered) conventional view. Whatever happens has innumerable causes. It’s an expression of the whole, of movements going back to beginning of time (if there is any) and the widest extent of space (if it has any end). And that goes for what happens in the wider world as well as what happens in our minds and lives. Even wanting something to happen is included. That too is what “wants to happen”. That too is an expression of the whole, and movements within the whole. And the same for any experience of a separate self wanting, doing, living etc.
