Have you ever thought about how life would show up differently if you believed everything was happening for you and not to you?  What if you truly believed the world was rigged in your favor? 

Well I for one, know that it is. 

Human suffering occurs when we want something to be different from what it actually is. But what if we made like mamma nature and just went with the flow?  Make like a cloud and float along, care free? How can we learn from the flowing river and the breeze rustling through the trees? I believe there is a message in the way the planets never seem to worry about just how they are floating through outer space.

So why then, do we put so much emphasis on the smallest of nuances that seem to go wrong in our daily lives?  Why do we micromanage our time to the last second?  A beautiful teacher of mine recently challenged me to add a second column to my to-do list.  It is here that she said I should place the items that I am leaving up to God or the Universe – whatever name you give to the idea of a greater intelligence – and it has really done wonders in my life, and in the amount of work I force myself to do. 

Create the possibility that you can do LESS and accomplish MORE.

What if we took the path of least resistance and worked with what is working?  What if we trusted that we are always supported, and just as the way winter does not worry that spring will come again, nor should you worry about circumstances that seem hopeless.  Imagine a young child experiencing a long frost for the first time.  At first glance it might appear as though the landscape is lifeless but just as our earth goes through cycles, so do we, and some of the most beautiful blossoms emerge from the darkest of periods.

Remember that you are that magic and flow which is life - and the moment you begin focusing on that, the more you will realize just how life has always been working FOR you.
