Stop Interfering In The Process And Try To Relax

It’s so hard for me to trust in the process. I am much better than I was ten years ago, and I’m sure I’ll be better ten years from now.

But right now, in this moment, as I write these words, I’m having a hard time relaxing and letting the process take me over. There are a wide variety of reasons why. I am worried about the future, and future thoughts are always a waste of time, and always a downer.

I am doing the worst thing possible. Do you know what that is?

When the universe is working on our behalf as it always is, we get worried, doubtful, and anxious, and start putting our own ideas into the mix and implementing them.

There are two reasons why that is a bad idea. Not only are we interfering with the flow of goodness towards us, and ruining the possibility of stuff happening for us, which could happen perfunctorily without any issues. But also, we are telling the universe we don’t trust you.

We are telling this huge magnanimous being that you are wrong, you don’t know what you are doing, and I’m going to do my own thing. I don’t know about you, but even if the universe doesn’t have an ego, anyone would leave if this was said to them intentionally or unintentionally.

I’m not saying that we have to sit on our asses and do nothing. Absolutely not. That would be a non-sequitur. We wouldn’t even get out of the starting gate at that rate. We have to do. But we have to spend more time receiving, and listening, rather than doing and hustling.

The problem with me is that I am a great worker-bee. I have been trained to be so over the years by the industrial and IT revolution that I have been part of. I am great at working. I am not great at sitting, and waiting. I’m horrible at patiently receiving and accepting.

I can’t even receive compliments properly, so what am I going to do about something so great as my life purpose? Probably kick it to the curb, pretending it was probably for someone else.

Oh man, I’m such an idiot, sometimes, there are no words for in, in any language.

So I am telling you not to repeat my mistakes. Learn to sit and receive. The universe wants to give us things, but we always think it’s not the fastest and smartest way for us to receive. We think we can do better.

I mean, what does the universe know?

It knows nothing, except all of the secrets of the universe, and everything else possible.

But we know better for ourselves our path and our destiny. If I just poke and prod long enough at something, something else will come out of it, for sure, getting me to where I want to get to, which in itself is a big mystery.

Where do I want to go and how do I get there? The universe knows. And we don’t know. We think we know, but we don’t. You don’t and I don’t. And no one knows. Even the ones who think they know or look like they know. They have no idea. No idea.

So why are we pretending here?

Why can’t we just accept the bounty that has been laid down at our feet? The universe wants to give us something, and at first, it might look like those dead animals that your cat brings to you as presents every now and then. You think, that the cat must hate you, I mean, why else is giving me gifts like this? But the gifts that look like dead, rotting animals at first, might turn out to be the most precious gifts ever. Don’t despise, and don’t deny.

Accept, accept, and accept some more.

Sit in silence, and receive.

Go for a walk in nature, and receive some more goodness.

Just be. Allow. Surrender. Be.
