What you have to look at also is another, even maybe a new concept, is “living life by direction.” Living your life the way you want through the direction of your heart, your Spirit; not being controlled or directed by your patterned behaviors and beliefs, attitudes and knowings. Being the eye of the storm; directing the direction of the storm.
And the storm isn’t necessarily destructive. It could be gathering; it could be building up; it could be creating or it could be tearing down the old. It could be all of those things. But you are the director of the storm, so to speak, or the tornado and the tornado simply being the metaphor for active human life.
