CONTROL BLOCKS GROWTH
We often have the (natural!) urge to cling to something or someone like grim death. It’s a fear of losing. We dig our heels in, because we are afraid we won’t reach our goals. But it’s that frenetic hanging on that obstructs every feasible change. If you can find the trust to let something go, you’ll create space for development and you will receive all you need.
Mark my words: all you need. That can be the opposite of what you want of even of what you think you need. More than that, it can be something you absolutely don’t want to have. Because you perceive it as negative. Like an illness. A divorce. A death.
go is an act of faith. By giving up your grim grip, your need for control,
in a way you’re saying: ‘I have faith that I can handle
everything that comes my way’. And that’s something!
While letting go
is an act of faith, control is an act of fear. The need to control everything,
is saying: ‘I don’t trust myself to handle a situation I
hadn’t counted on’.
If you become aware of the fact that everything that happens, even (and maybe even especially) the more difficult situations, are meant to show you all aspects of your Self and are giving you the opportunity to bring out the best in you, you no longer want to have control. Because you will realize that control will pin you down and will blockade your journey.Building on,
