(Excerpt: 52 Ways to a Happier Life, Chap. 41)
I’ll never understand why we, as human beings, constantly think we’re controlling the universe; we’re not. I realize it is our ego, attempting to stay in control, even though we all know it never works that way. All spiritual and religious teaching in the past several thousand years, have taught that our role is essentially to ask for what we want, believe it is on its way, and act as if it is occurring by giving thanks for having received it.
That’s it! We don’t need to figure out how. As a matter of fact, trying to figure out how our dreams will manifest is the biggest block to our success.
I am always amazed at how easily I, and I’m fairly sure many of you, slip back into the habit of trying to figure things out on my own.
Even though we know there is Divine Guidance available to us and know we are not alone here on this spinning little planet in the middle of the universe and have learned, over and over through our experiences, that whenever we truly ask for help, whether it is through prayer, meditation, or some other spiritual practice, it has always been there.
I have had experience after experience, from being at the bottom and thinking my life was over, to needing help to solve a business challenge, to something as simple as finding my way when lost on a highway in a strange city.
Each time I sincerely asked for help, it was there. The phone would ring, I would see something on a sign or in a newspaper, or a friend would make a suggestion. Whatever the situation, there have been many times in my life when the help from above was clearly there for me.
The interesting thing is that the more one looks at these signs, as with everything we focus upon, the more they are there to be seen. I know this has happened to you, too.
One thing is for sure, the more I “let go and let God” the less stress I feel and the easier my life becomes. The more I trust and do my part, which is essentially to identify what I want, making my intentions and desires known, believing I will receive it and acting on my intuition, the more everything in my life “magically” falls into place.
I encourage you to give this a chance to work in your life, if you’re not already doing so. Develop a habit of giving your problems over to your Higher Power. Talk to God, Spirit, the Universal Force, Jesus, Angels, Buddha, Spirit Guides, Allah, or whatever it is you believe describes that Power that created everything in our universe.
