Control... A Lack of Trust?

shutterstock_31353388As I contemplate why I sometimes try to control things and do not allow them to be as they are, it occurs to me that it is ultimately a lack of trust. Not trusting that life will unfold things the way I would like. Some might call it faith. Why else would I try to control or force things to go the way I want them to? Nothing else makes sense.

So the ultimate trust in Spirit/God/Life (and ultimately myself) would be to let go and allow things to unfold as they needed to. And to trust in my survivability.

Thinking back, when I have trusted and let go, really cool things happened. Often much more beautiful than I could envisioned or planned myself. That is the biggest problem with control. When I control or force things, I limit myself to what I can think of with my little mind rather than seeing what beauty might emerge from the depths of the unknown.

So from where I am sitting it seems a bit arrogant of me to think that I know better than Spirit/God/Life what is best for me.

Now I just need to remember that the next time I am trying to control or force things. I shouldn't have to wait too long...

I am curious to find out what blog system you're using?

I'm having some small security issues with my latest website and I'd like to find something more risk-free.

Do you have any suggestions?
