I always like to remind folks who attend my talks that we are living in extraordinary times. Now more than ever we need to listen to our hearts and march to the beat of our own drum. Yet we are not solo performers on this stage – but more like a duo, with Universe as our partner, in what I like to think of life as the dance of life. There is ebb and flow, push and pull, reap and sow.
In our technologically advanced, left-brain evolved world, we think we can do more and know all the answers in making things happen for ourselves. But the truth is that we are only half the equation – the Universe, with its great unknown, unseen power, process and nature – is the other half.
There is a sublime order to things in our world if we only allow ourselves to honor it, regardless of how long our journey takes or what form or shape the fruit of it bears; the Universe always knows better than our little pea brains. There is a method to its seeming madness and oft lengthy timeline, but the more we resist its infinite wisdom, the more we suffer, the more mess is made, the more there is to clean up and the longer it can take to get back on track.
Instead, we must learn to go with the flow – not in a loosey-goosey kind of way – but with faith and confidence, like when a farmer plants his seeds, in knowing that the sun will rise tomorrow and that what comes up must come down.
Any artist, dancer, musician or athlete understands that practice and technique will only get you so far – at some point you have to let go and allow the Universe do its thing. In other words, no matter what you are working towards – getting a new job, growing a business, reaching health goals or improving relationships – you need to simply “Do your best and surrender the rest.”
If you haven’t seen the external results you desire, take a moment to slow down and reflect – if you’ve paid attention you’ll notice you’ve been undergoing some major inner reconstructing, re-arranging of molecules and experiencing a deep emotional and mental detox encouraging you to let go of the past in order to move forward into the future; this too is part of the dance. Sound familiar? If not, and you’ve been feeling blocked at every turn, ignoring the call to do this type internal work is probably to blame, and is easy to correct.
The beauty of dancing with the big U. is that that once you get in sync with it, things actually get in sync with you, and stuff starts to happen, as I always say, “in time and on time”, and often more miraculously than you could have ever imagined.
