“Trust the universe. Trust means, that the circumstances you are in, are working toward your best and most appropriate end.” Gary Zukav
Zukav wrote the New York Times bestseller, ‘The Seat of the Soul, an Inspiring Vision of Humanity’s Spiritual Destiny’, 20 years ago. In that he devoted a whole chapter to trust. Over the last couple of years I have been reminded over and over that life can feel more peaceful if I don’t try to control the outcome, if I can let go the attachment of the outcome. For someone used to pushing through life this has been a hard lesson (& I hasten to add, it isn’t over yet).
In these thoughts this week I am mainly concentrating on the Trust of the Universe. When you next have some quiet time, think or meditate about the other aspect of trust – that of trusting ourselves and other people. The answer to this will be reflected in how we interact with the world. So back to the Universe.
How do we know whether we are being the person we came into this earth experience to be? How can we trust, when our circumstances don’t inspire us. It is these feelings of discontent about our present circumstances or the longing for something better that cause us to grow and become more empowered to trust the process. If we are doing what we feel passionate about and feel life has a purpose, that is the first step in living our dream life. Are you doing what is in alignment with your core values, do you need to learn more, do you need some help to achieve your dreams & are your dreams going to enhance other people’s lives? If you can say, ‘Yes’, to all of these you know that you are moving in the right direction for your life.
Now all you need to do, is Trust that the universe will create the experiences necessary to achieve your dreams. Start noticing the little ‘coincidences’ that keep cropping up & it helps to then trust that the universe knows what it’s doing!
Enjoy letting go & TRUSTING!
