[Transcribed from podcast ep. #194] I really love this quote because it speaks to the concept of faith, and faith that there’s something bigger than self—God, your higher self, Source, the Universe, whatever you want to call it—doesn’t matter; it’s all the same thing: consciousness—it is working through you, but when you are trying to sort of control your life, it is… you’re kind of edging God out: EGO, Edging God Out. Right? (laughs) Whenever your ego is in full force and it is trying to control all things around it, it doesn’t leave room for this higher version of yourself—this grander part of self; this Source, this God, higher self, consciousness—to work through you, and to do its magic.
This is when the magic comes, when you start to relax into the flow. Your job is just to continue to flow, and to not be attached to the results, and think that you have the answer on how it has to show up. Your consciousness as a human being is a fraction of your higher self’s consciousness—so it’s like expecting an ant to have the same perspective as a human being, and how to solve a complex puzzle (laughs) You’re an ant compared to your higher self! Allow it to work through you; allow it to do its thing—and stop trying to control so much. This is where the magic happens.
Joseph Campbell said, “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” “Life’s what happens when your plans don’t work out” is another quote that I’m very fond of. We are always trying to control and it is a tough one to overcome, but if you can just relax into it; move into allowing life to happen—you will start to see so many magical things flow. I know in my own life it’s still a challenge; it’s one of those things that I circle back around, controlling—”I’ve got to make something out there happen”—not nearly as important as making sure my vibration is in a state of allowance, allowing this grander part of self to come through me. Once you start making this your objective, you’ll see for yourself…
