“Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be.” – Sonia Ricotti
I love how things pop up just at the right moment when you need it. When I see or hear something multiple times, I know the universe is speaking to me. Recently, I read Pam Grout’s newsletter about how your thoughts can create reality when you have faith and trust the universe. Shortly after, I received an Email from Daily Om, Things We Can’t Control about letting go and trusting life will unfold exactly the way it should. Click the links to read more.
When dealing with difficult situations or worrying about what’s going to happen, this quote is a reminder to let go of what was in the past and also expectations about controlling things the way we want them to be. When we struggle with challenges and obstacles, we become entangled in them like being stuck in quick sand or seaweed. If we stay calm and let go of wrestling with life, the universe will bring us what we need.
It’s perfectly described by the Chinese philosophy of Tao Te Ching: “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.”
