In this simple observation, there is the notion of surrender. When we resign as general manager of the universe and mind our own business, we begin to surrender.
We can stop believing that we are in control of everything.
We must take our power where it lives--in this moment--and surrender to a path even if we don't know where the path is going.
The hardest part of turning our lives over to the care of a power greater than ourselves and choosing surrender over control is that we have to resign from this lofty position.
We can give up our way of doing things, our efforts to control the situations and circumstances of our lives. We can let go of the things we believed to be true that did not work for us.
The truth is that we really have no idea where the universe is trying to guide us.
But wherever it is, we can believe it's essential to stop and listen for the whispers that the universe offer through its many different voices.
The voice of courage, the voice of a new future, the voice of our own greatness will sneak in when all the activity stops--especially the activity of the mind, since our minds cannot take us where our hearts long to go.
Enjoy this moment.
