“Everything that happens to you from moment to moment happens because it has the highest probability of waking you up. I know that this idea might sound crazy, but there’s no getting around it. Your entire life has one agenda: awakening.”
— Tom Stine
This makes more sense if we consider all of reality exists as a process of self-knowledge, of waking more deeply to itself. This is of course reflected in every aspect of itself, including each of us.
