“I don’t think that we can try to attain the awakening of our soul in any other way than by choosing to put ourselves in the presence of a God of our understanding. The difficulty is in getting out of God’s way. If I think that I know exactly the direction of God’s guidance, I have learned that it is probably my ego answering me. Another way that I use to understand God’s direction is to not do anything to force the outcome. I do the footwork and leave the outcome to Him. If my direction is God’s will for my life, the going will be easy. If I am trying to force something to happen, I usually become stressed out. Today I’ll set aside several times just to ‘check-in’, then I’ll let go and let God.” P.S. Letting go isn’t a one-time thing, it’s something you have to do everyday, over and over again.
