Today’s thought from Hazelden is:
Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of life.
The times that life works best are when we get out of the way and let the power work through us. The writer says of an inspired short story, “I didn’t write this story; it seemed to write itself.” After a record-breaking performance an athlete recalls, “I just had an ‘on’ day. My shots kept falling in.”
Each of us has had moments when we felt as if we were riding the crest of a wave or were being pushed from behind by a gentle wind. The more you can surrender to the universal energy and go with its flow, the easier life becomes.
Compare this experience to that of trying to control and manipulate life through the limited ego. Everything becomes a strain and an effort, a constant struggle. We tire easily. By the time we cross the finish line, we wonder if the race was worth running.
A better way is stated by the paradox, “You give it all up to have it all.” Whatever your current situation, step back and let the power work through you. You’ll be amazed at the miracles that occur. When your will and the Higher will are aligned, all things become possible.
