“Crises are sent to shake us out of our slumber, to re-awaken a sense of purpose. Too often, we become so preoccupied with our vested interests that we forget why we are here. We fall asleep. Then, Life gives us a wake-up call. We’ve all had them. Whether they’ve been life-threatening situations, financial disasters, emotional upheavals, or relationship conflicts, they remind us that we are ignoring, or have forgotten, what is most important in our lives. They make us ask again, “What am I here for?”
A wake-up call stops us dead in our tracks and commands our attention. It rattles us out of our mind-ruts and fixed behavior patterns rooted in ignorance and unconsciousness. If we’ve been selling our soul piecemeal to our fears and insecurities, burying ourselves ever deeper into trenches of resistance and denial, we can be certain the call will come again and again until we finally heed it…And when the call comes, how we respond to what happens is more important than whether or not we “caused” or “deserved” what happens. Life never dials a wrong number.”
Michael J. Tamura, in “You Are the Answer”
