"There is only one thing for us to do, and that is to do our level best right where we are every day of our lives; To use our best judgment, and then to trust the rest to that Power which holds the forces of the universe in his hands."
~ Orison Swett Marden
One of the most difficult things for us to do is to trust…specifically, trust that everything will work out for the best.
Our society seems to have adopted the attitude that we can only rely on ourselves to make sure that our life turns out as we wish. We are bent on “making it happen.” This is one of the most counter-productive attitudes that we could have. The way the Universe is structured doesn’t promote this attitude…as a matter of fact, it is quite the opposite.
When we try to make things happen, we are pushing against the natural order of things. We are determined to create in our lives, the exact thing that we most desire. When we do this, we tend to come at it from the position or perspective of, “It is missing from my life, so I am going to force it to happen.” As we adopt this perspective, we are approaching things from the perspective of lack, and, the Universe, being the fair manager of all things that it is, will continue to deliver exactly what we are thinking about…the lack of what we want.
We need to start relaxing and believing that the Universe knows exactly what we want, and it will be delivered to us in the most delicious ways. We need to allow the Universe to do its thing and trust that it will bring what we most desire in the best possible way…at the best possible time.
Many of us are impatient for the results. “I want it yesterday,” seems to be a common theme with us. When we take a step back and shift our perspective, we will see that we really don’t want instant manifestation of all of our desires. There would be little, if any growth from such a situation. We would be missing the journey; we would be disregarding the true reason why we came into this physical plane in the first place…to experience life and expand the Universe.
My advice to you is to give some deep thought to what you want. Try to include some emotions about what it will be like when you have this thing or this situation, and then, let it go. Forget about it. Keep on living your life. Do what you feel is appropriate in each moment. Before you know it, you will look around and find that you are living the life you desire. You may not notice it arrive, as you will have made your way there in small increments (not necessarily over a long period of time.)You will look and say, “Oh, there you are.” Each small progression will seem like the next logical step.
The Universe has everything under control. Now it is time to sit back and let it work its magic. It will not fail, as long as you believe in the power of the Universe.
Do you think you need to “make” things happen in your life? Or are you willing to let go and trust the Universe…and “allow” things to happen? Let the community know what you think by leaving a comment to this post. We’re listening.
