Can it be said that living a spiritual life is going with the traffic? On an unspiritual note, should bicyclists going the wrong way on a one-way street, especially those turning into one get what they deserve? But let’s not come back down to earth so quickly. Going the wrong way can mean expecting rather than offering or at times offering what’s not wanted. Many writers complain about being rejected by journals they have never bothered to read. Does going with the flow connote conformism and a denial of individuality? Uniqueness and originality are inadvertent and rarely result from a conscious effort to flout social mores. On the other hand, it’s not necessary to repress any aspect of the self in order to be a choral singer. Bassos, tenors and sopranos all have their own sections. At worst those who go in the wrong direction run the risk of head-on collisions with other cars--or life. You might say that some people break the rules because they’re literally or metaphorically inebriated. BTW, disinhibition is not recommended for those who have a tendency to veer off course to begin with.
