“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. ” – Deepak Chopra
Being out of control is scary. When tragedy or challenges come into our life or an unexpected emergency occurs, we grasp for lifelines that are familiar to us and yet, they are often not there to hold onto to.
Our internal dialogue plagues us with thoughts of good and bad about every situation and if we base our day-to-day decisions on the approval or control of others, we will always fall short in living our truth and receiving the answers we seek.
Sometimes people mistake trying to control what someone else does as guidance, which it’s not. Too often controlling people come across under the guise of “I’m just trying to help you,” and so when you are not sure what is best for you or that you are not strong enough to stand in your own truth, you will often be taken in the wrong direction.
When you allow yourself to connect to a solid trusting Spiritual Practice, you will start to connect to a flow that allows your life to unfold without resistance. When we let go of our ego and tap into the truth that is always within you, you will find the answers to all your questions and become confident in your intuition.
Our ego is created on fear and fear blocks love and abundance to come through. So when you make a decision to connect to a source of love and trust through your spiritual practice, you will find there is a perfect job for you and that there is a perfect plan for you and overtime, there will be an easy flow in life.
“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” – Deepak Chopra
I think for a lot of us, we are in the process of awakening and opening up to who we really are and what we came to do, which at times is difficult. Yet I believe, if we always integrate the best of ancient traditions like Yoga and a Spiritual practice in our daily routine, we will find that each challenge or conflict along the way, can be overcome with a sense of destiny and purpose.
If we stay open to the fact that where we are right now is the perfect position and that those around us are here to teach us, we can make a difference in this world and find the peace and abundance we long for.
“There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle. – Deepak Chopra
Staying committed to a practice of stillness each day can open doors and opportunities that you never thought were possible. Even during the dark days of pain, if you accept your experience in love no matter what unfolds, you can become aware that each day is a unique gift of hope.
