Compelled

The last post referred to a movie, The Whale Rider. It’s a favorite, not just because it is a triumphant and uplifting tale, but because it reflects the truth that we must do what we must do.

This notion was affirmed by Albert Einstein, when he noted we should know that much of what we do will not matter, but know that we must do it.

Central to the plot of A Killer’s Grace is the idea that whether we know it or not, we are compelled by life itself and our own inner necessity to move in directions and tackle challenges that cannot be avoided. It is not that we are puppets, rather that we are driven by forces we cannot control.

The secret seems to be in willingly engaging what we must.
