I recently read a blog post by a blog that I follow, the message goes along with so much of what I have been saying about flowing with life and just learning how to “BE”. I wanted to share it with you, enjoy! Love and Peace! Sandy
The Master allows things to happen.
She shapes events as they come.
She steps out of the way
and lets the “path” (Tao) speak for itself.
This has been what I’ve been learning over the past couple of years. Allowing things to happen.
It goes counter to our usual instincts in Western society — we are doers, creators of our destiny, we make things happen … we don’t wait for it to happen! That’s what I was taught from an early age, in school and by every motivational sports movie I ever watched. So allowing things to happen is not my normal way.
I have never been one to be passive, to let things happen instead of making them happen, to let go of control of things. But here’s what I’ve been learning:
That’s all very good, Leo, you’re thinking. But that won’t put the food on my table.
Maybe you’re right. And so, don’t let me stop you from what you need to do. Carry on. I’ll just sit back and watch.
