Recently I was reminded of a little truth that gave me big peace of mind. It is not up to us to figure out the “how”. Our spirit and the universe always guides us to help us achieve our soul’s aspirations. It is up to us to listen and follow the guidance. If we are trying to control the “how” we’re missing the boat because the more we try to control, the more we strangle life in the process and cheat ourselves out of the opportunities designed to help us achieve our soul’s desires. I know it is easier said than done. I personally have lost count of the number of times I have done just that – tried to control the “how”, often wondering in frustration why things weren’t working the way I thought they should.
An image comes to mind of my dad swimming in a public pool with my brother who at the time was maybe around 5 years old. My brother not knowing how to swim and somewhat afraid of the water hung tight around my dad’s neck for the ride of his life. As my dad tried to swim and submerged himself more into the water, my brother tightened his grip around my dad’s neck. As my brother held on tighter and tighter it became harder and harder for my dad to swim until eventually my dad,being choked by my brother, started going under. This in turn caused my brother to choke my dad even harder. Luckily for the lifeguard who picked up on the seriousness of the situation and came to the rescue while everyone else thought that my dad and my brother were just playing and providing entertainment for everyone.
Well, ’tis the same with life. How tight is your grip?
I for one have recently published my book “Meeting My Twin Flame”, a personal memoir about my spiritual awakening, a journey my spirit and the universe took me on which I couldn’t have possibly dreamed up in a million years. I do remember setting some goals, however, prior to my journey. I am now realizing how miniscual my goals were in comparison to what I received throughout this profound journey; my soul’s true passion and expression.
By the way my book is now available in a variety of ebook formats on www.smashwords.com at http://www.smashwords.com/b/319420 or in kindle format on www.amazon.com.
How much peace of mind would you have if you knew that your spirit and the universe would figure out the “how to” for you? All you would have to do is listen and follow. And what would you dare to do if you knew that your spirit and the universe had your back all the time?
