Control Disconnects You from Your Power
Despite how it sometimes seems, the Source of life knows what it is doing at all times. When you try to control things, you misalign with life and then everything is more challenging because you are disconnected from this Source. When you let go and trust the power of the Universe, this power has the innate ability to serve you in all ways.
Letting go is the key to invoking the power of the Universe.
By trying to make life conform to your will, you waste your energy and you waste the very energy that could serve you – cutting yourself off from the unlimited power to create what you truly desire. When you try to force, manipulate or control, you cannot be trusted with this powerful energy because you do not understand it or respect it.
The power that comes from letting go
This immense and unlimited power cannot be grasped. The mere attempt at possessing it, puts it further out of reach. You can only access this power by letting go. When you access this power by letting go, you are someone who can be trusted with it – primarily because you trust it.
It does require courage to let go, but you really have no choice, because eventually, you will have to let go. Not only because everything is in a constant state of dissolving, or that eventually, we die, but rather because life will put insurmountable stress upon you until it becomes too painful to stay in control and you have no other choice but to let go. Hence, this is the divine purpose of stress. The stress in your life is pushing you to let go. It is no mystery that those who try to relentlessly control have the most stress.
Letting go of control immediately brings you back into connection with who you really are and the infinite power that originates and flows from this eternal Source. This intrinsic power is what you are letting go to. If you do not know what you are letting go to, it is very difficult to let go. Therefore, the greatest practice in which you can ever partake is in discovering who you really are. When you intimately know the Source of your being, it becomes very easy and effortless to let go because it is something, like no other, that you can trust. Nothing is more important than developing your relationship with this omnipotent Source – everything comes from this one connection.
Trusting life does not mean that undesirable experiences will never happen, it does mean that if they do, you trust that whatever unfolds is in your highest good, and the highest good of those involved.
So what happens after you let go the control freak inside you?
Do you just go with the flow and allow life to unfold around you? Well, this is certainly one option and many awakened beings have chosen this path, but there is another option. It is my opinion that we are here to co-create. I am not just here to be a witness. I am here to dance with life and to create my own music for life to dance with me. Life invites your creativity so that your unique dance through the Universe is like no other.
Your ability to co-create lies in the power of your mind.
Life originates and unfolds in a Mental Universe which we call reality, therefore the only thing that can be influenced is the mental aspects of the Universe, and when this is mastered, the Universe unconditionally conforms.
Because the mental universe is a universe of mind, the way to influence anything in the Universe is through thought; not by controlling circumstance but by controlling thought. This includes our powers of visualization and imagination. Your innate ability to co-create and influence the flow of life lies in the power of your mind.
In our attempts to control life, we have disconnected from the source of our power to create.
It is interesting that these powers of the mind are discouraged from the time we are young children, and we are trained to use limited left brained thinking to get through life, but let’s not focus on the problems – let’s expand the solutions. If you want to claim your power, external protests will do nothing without reclaiming your power to think for yourself, image what you desire and put vision to your heart’s greatest desires. Action is always the effect. The real power comes from becoming the Master of Your Own Mind.
