Last week was pretty massive in terms of importance for me. I felt resistance from myself. I felt my old patterns returning. My old belief systems serenading me again…
Pushing and striving. Ah. This is too much work. I need to go back to basics.
Peeling My Ego Away
I have reflected a lot. My mind wandered to the challenging times we were going through as a family. Things are a million times better now, however I know we are transitioning to something deeper and greater. It’s taking its time and coming exactly when it is right.
I thought about how when tackling our challenges, my parents’ and my egos got in the way. We couldn’t come up with clear solutions because we were just clinging to our old ways of thinking and being.
Things had to be the way we thought it should be. With ego, fear is inevitably linked. The Universe is instead making different things and situations happen. Instead of resisting, if we had accepted the changes wholeheartedly, it would make our lives much, much easier.
Letting Go and Breathing…
This is when the practice of letting go comes in. Letting go is not just some wordy, over intellectual concept. Have you ever noticed when you push and force, what happens? You become filled with doubt and anxieties.
Whatever is going on in life, even if it’s not want you wanted, you must accept it. That means letting and trusting it’s for your highest good.
Don’t over analyze and think. Just go with the flow.
Who Am I to Decide? Let the Universe Decide 🙂
Why can’t you let the Universe decide what is best for you? Why can’t you say: Hey Universe, I’ll just accept what you’re giving me with love. I’m just going to agree with you!
Firstly, wouldn’t life be much simpler and easier?! Yet we don’t do this. The point is we don’t always know why something is unfolding the way it is. Just go with it. Let your life’s doors open the way they are meant to.
