I didn’t really feel that it would be of benefit to me, since I was positive that the treasure that I wanted was behind the one door, but I had nothing to lose at this point so I tried another door, it opened easily. To my disappointment there was nothing behind it, just a passage leading into the darkness.
This is what happens to us in life. We think we want something, and we make up our minds as to how it will come. In that process we forget that we cannot see the complete field of possibilities, and that we are much better letting the Universe decide the path of least resistance and least number of obstacles for us.
Let me explain again with Charlie’s help.
After trying for over an year, Charlie finally gives up. He is disappointed and dejected, and can’t understand what is wrong. After a while, Charlie’s friends encourage him to start dating other people. He doesn’t want to because he doesn’t think anyone will ever come up to the same standard, but still he starts going out again. One day many months later, when he was least expecting it, he bumps into his beloved again. This time everything is different. His beloved is much friendlier towards him and they hit it off like they never did before.
Haven’t you heard of similar stories where people stopped struggling to get the one thing they thought would make them deliriously happy and then they got the very thing? The one area where I have heard of this sort of thing again and again is with couples who are trying to have a baby. They try and try and try and nothing happens, then they stop trying or they adopt, and the next thing you know they are pregnant!
I’ve seen people fuss over finding a job, turning away from work that is right there in front of them while they wait for the perfect job to show up – and they keep waiting for a very long time. Finally they give up, and take whatever is there only to find that it leads to exactly what they wanted and better.
Sometimes the path we think we want to take is fraught with difficulties – it is not the path of ease and flow. Source keeps calling us to another path but we don’t go, because we think it’s a lesser option, and yet it is probably a path that has the ability to lead us to the things we want with far less effort than the path of our own choosing.
Is there something in your life that you have been wanting for a very long time? Try giving up on it. Try to let go and allow the Universe to lead you to whatever is the easiest path to follow and watch how quickly things will turn around. Just focus on the end result you want and what it will feel like to achieve that goal.”
