Have you ever forced something on yourself or others unnecessarily?
Have you ever fretted about things that you don’t have any control over?
I presume the answer doesn’t require any scientific research, the clear answer is YES
Yes, we all have been there. Many times, and maybe we’ll continue to be there more but from today, let’s promise ourselves one, to let things flow. Don’t let the situation and circumstances take controls over our intellect and frame of mind. As I can recall a great quote by Jalalludin Rumi, he says –
“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this, I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.”
I personally have always been inspired by Jalalludin’s great words of profundity. So, here too, in summary, he said: let things flow.
The more pressure we apply, weaker and frail things get. Sometimes its okay to leave things for a while as they are, it’s not the end of the world, and it won’t be. Maybe you’ll get some fresh air and free mind and space to think better, to make better conclusions and to know what to do next.
But I’m not saying that we shouldn’t take any action! Of course, we should and we would but you can’t watch things fall completely apart in front of your eyes and do nothing about it. The point is that your actions shouldn’t feel like a burden on yourself or to any other. Don’t move over the edge of the cliff to get it fixed. You forcing things won’t make the process any quicker. Take a deep breath and relax.
No matter what we do, not doing anything is an action too and it is a loud one. It’s a lazy-ass action which isn’t adviced. Just don’t be worried and don’t keep your mind occupied with worry, I believe we all have better work to do in life.
