‘They’ are actively working to distract you.
They are very, very good at it.
They have ways of grabbing your attention without you even noticing it … even though it might take place right out in the open.
Of course, they also have other ways, much more subtle ways.
They know you.
They may even know you better than you know yourself.
This last point, that might be the key.
To know yourself.
To know who you are, and what you want.
If you don’t, then you’re lost, and easily distracted.
