Know that no man in this life ever gave up so much
that he could not find something else to let go…
To the extent that you eliminate self from your activities,
God comes into them.
In this way, and no other, is true peace to be found.
How can you let go of control and enjoy freedom?
Try saying “I don’t care” about something you always fight, resist and hold tightly and see what happens.
I used to think the conversations in my head were my guides from Jiminy Cricket or my conscience. I’d hear my memory or ideas in my head and think that I should follow those words. It must be true. That should be my guide.
It was only through learning and practice that I came to understand my mind was not always true to my soul. I have come to realize that words in my head are not from God. But rather, that voice is my EGO and my past and what I have been told by those before me whether my parents, teachers, friends or strangers, none who were gods.
EGO stands for Easing God Out. Those words were my ego’s fear.
Now that I know this, I question the reflexive warnings that try to stop my pursuit of things new and different. Instead, I force myself to go there even if I’m uncomfortable to prove to myself that I am stronger and braver than I know. I let my heart and soul overrule my brain and fears. I strive to live for my dreams and possibilities.
You can too.
