Syncing With the Universe: Letting Go of Control

Syncing With the Universe: Letting Go of Control Let go. Let God.

Letting go of control may be one of the hardest things we have to do, at one time or another, in our lives. Everybody wants his or her own way. We want what we want and that's all there is to it. But there are often obstacles, roadblocks, and challenges lying between what we want, and where we are in consciousness, when we decide what we want. We can't always see or understand the why of that. But the feeling that we can get what we want if ... is fraught with problems because the tension of energy between desire and receiving actually keeps it at bay.

Many of us are inculcated with a certain ethic from familial, educational and religious instruction which boils down to: 'if you do these things, you'll get those things', or something similar. So, we work hard, try and live moral and upright lives, follow the rules, and bide our time, that we may receive the output for our earnest effort of input. Doing everything according to some plan we followed (or made) will surely bring us the desired result. But as we do this, we generally rely on our own efforts and all the mechanisms of the 3D material reality construct - the things that make sense, or are tangible, work according to a certain scientific kind of logic. We can forget that we work in concert with the unseen world.

Just let go
And let it flow, let it flow, let it flow
Everything's gonna work out right you know
Let go, and let it flow, let it flow, let it flow
Just let it go

lyrics from song, "Let It Flow", sung by Toni Braxton

Life has its way of just showing us that we are not in control. The very effort to attain something is often, interestingly, thwarted because the grasping, clinging undercurrent of energy attached to that want produces conflict. In order to receive, one must release the want, the desperation for it, and therefore, just let go. This coincides with the Buddhist virtue of non-attachment where one releases his or her desire for things or people or outcomes or concepts, which only bring suffering in this world.

There is a tension between doing all the 'right' things and having the right mindset (law of attraction) that one must achieve in order to sync oneself with the universal clock, the flow of life. Once you have done so, then, you have released expectation for how something should be. You have eased up on the resistance caused by your wanting. After all, the point of our power is in the present moment. When you are able to detach from what was or what may be, then you are able to be wholly present where you are.

There is a freedom in this. And there are better results, potentials and possibilities in this.

"Let go of what you think you know. Something amazing happens when you let God and trust."
― Tammy L. Kubasko

Interestingly, when you figure out how to release yourself from your desire, things have a way of shifting. You can find yourself moving back into divine flow because you have aligned your will with divine will, or the greater will. You begin to move more in harmony with the rhythm of life.

There is nothing to be gained by trying to hold on, or exert control over circumstances, or trying to oversee the outcome. We do it because we think it will help us manage our anxiety and fear, but really, it only adds to it. We risk not getting what we think we want by releasing and learning to trust that there is far greater potential available to us in the end by aligning our minds, hearts, consciousness with the same of one's creator source.

"Fear not little flock, it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom!"

Luke 12:32

Trust that the desires of your heart are heard. Trust that you are loved by Life Itself. Trust that the universe conspires on your behalf for GOOD. Trust that life is more harmonious than random. Trust that the good you are wanting is equally finding its way toward you.

Let go. Let God.
