Expectation need be lost.
Expectation of certain outcomes.
Stress over future (or past) events.
Let go of expectation.
Let go and be.
Work hard in your passion, but let go of expecting a certain outcome.
Things always turn out exponentially more than you could have ever imagined.
“I am very present to the idea that if you let go, it all gets done.
Now I’m not talking about being lazy. Anyone who knows me knows I am an extremely hard worker. What I’m talking about is letting go of the outcome. For many years I felt like Scrat - you know who I’m talking about - the poor character “Scrat” in the “Ice Age” movie series. He can never get the acorn, and if he does, he totally messes it up.
This video is one of many that capture the zany experience of Scrat. But many times in my own life I’ve felt like Scrat, always chasing and never having much to show for it.
That is because I had forgotten one of the fundamental tools in the Spiritual tool kit - detachment. My friend Ryland and I have a saying that we hear from Krishnamurti - it says, “I just don’t mind how it goes.” And when you are in that mindset, disaster isn’t disaster; what you have is abundance and where you are is perfect. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t work, try and do. But, if you are attached to a certain outcome, you may be missing the bigger picture in your life.
The Uni-verse has plans for you that you are not yet now aware of. And when you try and try, the world is beyond your winning, not because The Uni-verse is unfair, but because it has a better option for you that is beyond the struggle. Struggle is different than work. We all know that faith without works is dead. But faith in the hard times and faith when you’re not getting what you want isn’t faith, unless you trust.
Some of the things I REALLY wanted to happen in my life and I prayed and prayed to happen, just didn’t happen. Sometimes the greatest acts of Grace are unanswered prayers. If you are so attached to a certain outcome that it gives you pain, anxiety and worry - that is a sign that your thoughts are not aligned with the Will for The Uni-verse in your life. When you experience stress, anxiety and worry - those are thoughts based in fear and fear is not what we’ve come to be.
When we detach, when we let go, and when we allow something even greater to be that we didn’t see coming - THAT - is how we step into a miraculous life. I could have never imagined my life ten years ago being what it is today - not even three years ago. I had my plans, my intentions and my desires and most of them didn’t come true. And now I’m glad. I’m glad that certain prayers weren’t answered. I’m glad that certain people said no to me. I’m glad that things are going the way that they are because it’s beyond my wildest dreams.
I know you work hard; we all do. But today - is there a person, a situation or a prayer that you can just surrender? And allow The Uni-verse to show you a way that you had not yet considered? Can you see this moment as perfect? Can you see this moment as full of everything you need? Do you have the courage and humility to let go? If so, a world of magic is waiting for you. It’s one thing to be a part of the rat race, but I prefer to be pushed by angels. What about you?
