“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.”
“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” – Michael Altshuler
Time like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It’s a personal perception based on emotions and events. There are numerous ways to define and describe time. When we’re bored, sick, waiting to hear test results, or longing for a loved one, time drags on. For children eagerly awaiting Christmas, summertime or their next birthday, time takes forever. As we grow older each year literally seems to fly by. Regret, mistakes, missing out on things, not appreciating something or someone, along with good times, vacations, celebrations, and reliving special moments universally make us want to turn back the hands of time.
In today’s hectic world, we all feel there isn’t enough time to do it all. Commitments, chores, and work take time away from things we enjoy doing like reading, learning a new language, meditating, writing, walking in the woods, taking bucket list trips, spending time with family and friends. If we don’t make time to do these things, we’ll never find the time. When it comes time to reflect back on life will it really matter if we worked extra hours at the office or got all of the housework done? Time is precious. Like money it can be spent or with appreciation it becomes even more valuable.
