“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” ― E.E. Cummings
When we hold tightly to a goal, we often find it to be elusive. We may say to ourselves, “I want this so badly. I can see my goal. Why can’t I reach it?” The answer lies within the fine art and practice of detachment.
As we detach from the outcome of whatever we desire, we let go and gently surrender to the wisdom of uncertainty, which holds our freedom from the past, the known, and the limitations of any preconceived notions. In our willingness to step into the unknown – the field of all possibilities – we give ourselves over to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe, trusting that what we desire will come to us. ~ Oprah & Chopra Desire and Destiny
CENTERING THOUGHT FOR TODAY: I believe. I trust. I let go.
- When we accept who we are, just as we are, with trust in the power of source energy, we take an essential step along the journey to aligning with our true purpose and destiny. Write a letter that shares “what you wish you knew” when you were younger about the importance, liberation, and power of “just being you.” Write this letter of wisdom and encouragement as a reminder to your inner child, and consider sharing this letter with a young person in your life.
- Describe the evidence you have in your life experience that helps you to trust that things will be okay – to trust the timing of the universe. Maybe you have a story that speaks deeply to your heart and opens your trust; perhaps you see a sign in nature or hear a song over and over at just the right time. Reflecting on how this makes you feel, now describe how you can let go and let life flow today.
- What are you grateful for today?
