Changes manifest in many ways, by intent or by happenstance. Often it is not what you want that is most right for you but what comes to you in other ways. You may have definite desires that never manifest, but if you step back and look at your life from afar you might notice how often things arrive uninvited. Such surprise manifestations come from the unconscious, another part of you that intends on your behalf, secretly, but just as strongly as your conscious self. This unconscious self reflects deeper desires of your spirit rather than what your ego wants. Spirit provides what is most necessary and evolutionary though often most unexpected. It might not be what you think you want but what you actually need the most. Gifts come in all kinds of packages. Is gratitude in order? Simply for what is?
