Stay out of your own damn way.

I’ve been meditating a lot lately. For the past few weeks, specifically, I’ve received the same sort of message from myself . . . or the Universe, or whatever you’d like to call it. Whoever it is, they’re telling me to shut-up.

Okay, “they’re” not actually being rude about it. I don’t really hear voices either. It’s just that my internal commentary has changed. Recurring messages now say things like:

If you really want answers, stop talking.

Stop asking questions about the future.

Stop wishing, and visualizing your perfect outcome.

Watch & Observe.

All you need to do is return to yourself. . .

With these messages, there is also an understanding of why this must be done. I’ve been reviewing my past, and it turns out, some of the most remarkable events, I never saw coming.

I never asked,

never prayed,

and in fact, very little effort, was made on my part, in order for the events to transpire.

It’s as if these grand happenings were all part of the design, and nothing, not even me, could stand in the way. What if our most magnificent futures lived just on the other side of letting go?

  •  Letting go of expectations of the right way.
  •  Other people’s perceptions.
  • Superficial desires that were probably instilled in us via our cultures bizarre notions of success and happiness.
  • Rules which were created by tyrants who wanted squash our imagination and keep us suppressed.

Have you ever heard the joke, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans?”

What if that’s the truth? That occurrences which are meant to happen, do. But with that same concept in mind, what if we block the most blessed outcomes, by interjecting what we think is the best? I mean, there are many self-made people, who make things happen. And good for them, but what if their lives, our lives, could be even better by letting go once in a while?

I’m not sure what’s right for your lives, but for me, for a time, I’m going to stop making plans.

I’m going to do my best every day, continue with hobbies that bring joy, spend time with people who like to smile, purge what is no longer helpful, tie up loose ends from years before, say “yes” to random opportunities, allow myself to be inspired, and just see what kind of magic the Universe has in store.

You see, letting the process work is not about doing nothing. The message is, Stop thinking you know how your life is going to turn out. Stop creating obstacles. Stay out of your own damn way.
