What does it mean to let life live you?

It's about a state of being-ness. Just being. Being human. Existing in a state of receptivity so that we may experience the life we are supposed to be living. And when I say "supposed to" I don't mean you aren't on the right path or you're not doing something correctly. What I mean is that the purpose you're supposed to fulfill, the reason you chose to be here at this moment in time with this set of life circumstances, will present itself when you stop the busy-ness of doing and start the being-ness of living.

Living present. In the here-and-now. Because living present is enjoying and experiencing the gift of being alive: an ever-evolving, ever-burgeoning, never-ending expanse of infinite vibrancy that gifts and re-gifts itself ad infinitum.

Do you think I know what I’m doing?
That for one breath or half-breath
I belong to myself?
As much as a pen knows what it’s writing,
or the ball can guess where it’s going next.
— Jelaluddin Rumi

There is a lot of motion happening even in stillness. Planet Earth rotates between 600 and 1100 miles an hour depending on your latitude; it revolves around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour; and the sun spirals through the galaxy at half a million miles an hour.

That's a lot of motion—on a planetary scale—even when you're doing nothing at all.

So take some time just to be for a change. Let events unfold, let time pass, let the celestial bodies rotate and revolve, spin and spiral. And maybe instead of trying so hard to live your life, just sit back and let life live you.
