We have always been told to “buck up”, “take charge” and always be in control. And there is some truth to this- but the person we need to do this with is, us- we need to take charge of our self and be in control of our own thoughts and action. Instead, what most of us end up doing is that we try to control everything external- other people, situation, events and so on.
This becomes a losing battle from the very start, since- the external situation never was and never will be in any one person’s control. There are complex ways in which life itself determines who gets what, when and so on. Life determines these external factors- our job is to respond to life in the best possible way that we can. But that seems so difficult to do- how can we initiate this important process of surrender? How can we win and achieve all our goals, ambitions and dreams while surrendering to the Divine, to Life?
When we realize that the divine is the source of all and everything in existence, then it becomes not only easy but almost logical to surrender all outcomes to the divine and do what is needed in any given situation.
So, keep your attention on the source of your inspiration, the divine within your heart, as you go about the day, carrying out all the activities...
