FAITH MONTH: DAY 14: “As your faith is strengthened, you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.” – Emmanuel Tenet

For this control freak, peace in this arena is certainly my great delight and benefit. I still manage things, sometimes too much; but I am not the micro-controller of the Universe I used to be.

I am quite content to let the Universe play out those things in my life that I am working on. I have wanted to move into a different home for a long time. That opportunity has met with many roadblocks, and I am still where I have been living. I have not met this kind of resistance in the past, so am quite interested in what is coming.

But I sit still. I do the footwork and let the Universe unfold the outcomes. I heard this many, many years ago, and it is the best thing to do. I just could not get there for a very long time. I have dreams about moving, but no opportunity yet.

Meanwhile, other things can occupy my life. I stay out of the way of the Universe and keep my focus on those things that are right in front of me. Not going crazy making my will happen.

This is very new and different for me. I know I will have an amazing event when the home is found, and I get to move. We shall see.

This is a process. I am not done yet. I still exert control in trying to organize the world. This is my greatest skill/character defect. I can organize a train of 100 pounds of jumping beans. I just cannot control what they do when not under that control. It is a give and take.

And this quote is true, it is about faith. The more I let the Universe surprise me with what it would like me to do and be, the more delighted and benefitted I become.

I cannot wait, every day, to see what is coming next! This week has been very amazing so far! How about for you?
