~ Going In Circles | Three Dog Night ~
"We can take our inspiration from any fairy tale that finds its central character lost in a dark wood, frightened and alone. We know that the journey through the wood provides its own kind of beauty and richness. On the other side, we will emerge transformed, lighter and brighter, braver and more confident for having moved through that darkness.
This is just life’s way of taking us to a place we need to go for reasons that go deeper than our own ability to reason. These hard knocks and trials are designed to shed light on our unconscious workings and deepen our experience of reality."

We are apparently living in lala land and these "hard knocks" are designed to deepen our experience of reality? That was my thought after reading today's quotes from the Daily Om.
Actually, it all feels like the movie "Groundhog Day." Seriously.
The theme of our year has been "readdressing old issues over and over again" . . . and it seems as if we are moving through the darkness, going in circles which lead to nowhere.
In the past week, we have had to deal with health problems, car problems, home repair problems persist and nothing has changed. Oh please, I will spare you the details of these things that don't want to go away!
I'm having faith that all of these irritating life situations are building my character into a stronger, better person and I'll ultimately become fearless and worry-free . . . a contradiction of my own life. It could be the lesson that the good Lord is blessing me with.
We all run into all types of contradictions through the course of life's lessons.
Do you sometimes feel like you live in a mad world?
This video got my attention today!
I love when art imitates life.
