The illusion of control

As we awaken, we learn to trust the processes of life.

“What is the path? Residing in this very life, exactly as it is right now… liking or not liking has nothing to do with it.”  ~Ezra Bayda~

As humans, our point of view is very limited. We interpret life through the filters of our perception and often seek to control the world around us based upon what we perceive our needs or desires to be.

Awakening calls upon us to be aware of our responses to life. Rather than seeking to dominate circumstances we learn to flow with them. Rather than attempting to bend others to our will we see the sacredness in each person’s path. The only thing over which you have any control is yourself, and that is challenging enough! We’ve all experienced the take over of the ego-mind and have temporarily lost consciousness; however, these moments of missing the mark become less intense and occur more rarely as we continue in our practice.

So give up your need to control. Cultivate your ability to trust and you’ll discover greater peace in your daily journey. Your purpose is to awaken and all that you experience facilitates that awakening.
