We’re made to flow downhill

We prefer to take the easy way, the smooth path of least resistance.

We’re made that way.

On the inside, we have

  • particles that flow downhill
  • electrons that take the short route
  • circuits that choose the easy way

We’re made to go with the flow, so we’ll operate smoothly. It’s by design that the easy way is the best way, to save effort for the tough stuff.

The way we work, during business hours, is determined by our

  • chemistry
  • biology
  • physics

The laws of attraction and repulsion, the tipping of imbalance, and the teeter of restoration all answer to the laws of science. It’s the pluses and minuses, the charged and uncharged, the concentration of one versus the other that drives the whole show.

That’s how we’re made on the inside. When we’re in order, the path of least resistance balances us, because these things always hold true:

  • plus attracts minus, but like repels like
  • greater than moves toward less than until it’s even with
  • what’s on, turns off when there’s enough

We’re made that way. We’re made to be this way. We’re made to relate this way.

Simple math. Basic science. Complete genius.

So when the tough stuff comes, after hours,we can apply plenty of effort.

So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

About wlebolt

Life comes at you fast. I like to catch it and toss it back. Or toss it up to see where it lands. I do my best thinking when I'm moving. And my best writing when I am tapping my foot to a beat no one else hears. Kinesthetic to the core.
