Jon Farle is fond of saying this and I take it as a reminder not to get too set in my ways and to remain flexible. Have you not had the experience of going to do something in your normal way and had something prevent you from being able to carry it out? So you are forced to do it differently, and come up with a new way which is better.
I take it that if we will be open to guidance, an intelligence beyond our own will be able to operate through us. The trick is to get self out of the way so that we don't blog the serendipity.
