I’ve written before about the importance of being in alignment. When the alignment is off, even the smallest misstep can throw the system out of whack.
A system that is working is often ignored. This can be anything throughout the day that operates exactly as it’s supposed to, or as it has been doing constantly over time.
We notice when it breaks, though. That computer that suddenly won’t power on. The cellphone that doesn’t hold a charge. The warm and tepid contents of the refrigerator.
Were there warning signs? Probably. Did we pay enough attention to notice? Now that is a good question.
