“There is a soul force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
This Gandhi quote illuminates the importance of letting go and allowing the powerful within the universe to create miracles through us. Just like we didn’t birth ourselves or create ourselves, we alone cannot manifest everything we’re capable of in this lifetime. We must do our best. But we must also create a space for the miraculous to come through us and show up in the world.
Letting go is difficult for most of us. It involves releasing control and trusting a power beyond ourselves. This is not always easy. However, it is necessary.
The way we let go is allowing ourselves to be at peace. We must allow this even during the times we’re the most afraid, worried, and anxious. We have to calm our minds enough to allow divine inspiration to flow in. Creativity does not come from the human mind. It comes from beyond our senses. But we must be open. We must be free. And we must release resistance.
Practice letting go in your daily life. The next time you’re in traffic, release anger. The next time someone says something you don’t like, release frustration. Whenever you become irritated from something else in your life, re center your attention on peace. This will create the balance necessary to invite the divine to flow through you.
