One notion I've learned to understand on my spiritual journey is that when you get so into yourself as "master of everything", you will experience humbling situations from henceforth faith replaces your need to control life. Every spiritual being has their time. Life happens. In and out of your control. You are responsible for what you do at every moment, but so is everyone else, and the greater force that connects us allows life to play out.
The higher level of consciousness one enters, the more you realize the world does not revolve around you. You are not the world, therefore all that you want, is not reflective of the natural order of life. Life is not about getting what you want. It's not about becoming what you want. It's about an experience of BEing; an experience of exchange, and experience of fulfilling purpose. Every living organism has a purpose on Earth.
When we are more connected to our need to control what exists, and what may occur, we ignore the greater picture of life, and tend to have weak emotional and spiritual capabilities; we cut off our ability to thrive on every level of our being. Consider yourself and anyone, who's greatest goal was financial success. Typically once attained, they feel empty or lost. When you want a position, or material item so much, you receive it, and still feel "unfulfilled". Or attaining any type of status, you may lack the presence of love from a partner, family or friends, and feel empty. When you focus on controlling life for your mere pleasure and desires, you find out, "something" will be missing." Once you lose a person, place or thing, your world will turn upside down. Life will not always go as you plan, which is a clear indication that your control is limited.
Here enters faith. It is no secret that there are forces that cannot be explained by science. Doings that occur way outside our realm of control, and they typically involve the variants of faith, hope and belief. Peace comes when you can exists in the flow of life. When you know that you can give, and give up power simultaneously. To exist in a flow means to live in minimal resistance to life. Don't beat yourself up; don't anger quickly; don't sulk in regret, repression, and resistance. Give what you can, whether it's your best or a little. The more you give in life, the more you will receive, but at every moment, it will look differently. Learn to put forth what you can, and learn to just BE! Occupying your mind with ideas of control, takes away the mystery of life. Have faith, no matter what, choose to slow your roll, and Just BE!
BE Faith Filled~
