One of the exciting things about ‘letting go’ and ‘trusting’ is discovering things about oneself and life that we didn’t know existed.
To be in control presupposes that you have all the information to direct the show and know the outcomes. There is a tendency to stick with what we know which can result in repeat outcomes. “Do what you’ve always done and you’ll get what you’ve always got.” There is so much pressure in societies to know. ‘You’re an adult, you should know.’ Know who you are and what you want. Societies give a tremendous amount of credit to those who appear to know the most.
When we function purely within the physical mind, what we know is based on our accumulated experience to date, but we are so much more than physical beings. We are living on a continuum of multiple lives. We existed before this life and we continue to exist when this life has ended. So beyond our experiences in this life lies a vast amount of stored knowledge at a soul level. If we allow our minds to extend beyond our ‘this life’ experience and trust the deeper soul aspects of ourselves, we open to rediscovering ourselves on deeper more meaningful levels.
Over the last year or two I have found that admitting to ‘not knowing’ the answers to some of the big questions in my life has opened doors I never knew existed. I’ve rediscovered talent that has lain dormant since childhood and abilities I didn’t know I had. All of my accumulated knowledge/experience to date has given me the tools to fully utilize these new abilities, which has reignited my passion for life. Had I refused to relinquish control, I would not be passionately absorbed in something I love. Even now I have no fixed destination in mind. The day to day journey is so engaging that it is reward within itself.
