Let Go of the Need to Control or Understand

This excerpt from the writings I only now am beginning to share was transcribed in August of 2010.

“You do not need to know the next steps in the journey. You do not need to struggle. You do not need to understand. Your role is simply to allow.

‘But I must take action on the physical plane,’ you are saying, ‘or I will have no role at all.’ This, of course, is true, but you do not need to consciously figure out what the action is to be, and you certainly do not need to concern yourself with the ultimate outcome. You will be guided and directed, as you always have been.

Let go of the need to control or understand. What if you were to replace those with experiencing wonder in the moment – with simply having fun? That is hard for you even to imagine at this moment, but it truly is what you should be allowing to happen.”

“If you are convinced that a ‘bad’ economic condition can endanger your earning capacity, or that a negative comment by an associate can undermine others’ perceptions of you, your conviction is your way of assigning that power. If, on the other hand, you are convinced that there is a blessing for you in every circumstance, and if you refuse to allow yourself to become distressed by external influences, you will encounter the blessings you have expected.”
