Letting Go of Controlling Others

A belief that the behavior of others must be controlled — so that your observation of that good behavior will make you feel good — leaves you feeling vulnerable to their behavior. We would like to help you to understand that neither the good feeling you find when you observe wanted behavior, nor the bad feeling you find when you observe unwanted behavior, is actually the reason that you feel good or bad. The way you feel is only ever about your alignment, or misalignment, with the Source within you. It is only your relationship with the Source within you that is the reason for the emotions that you feel. While it is nice to find things in your physical environment that enhance your good-feeling; alignment with your Inner Being, your understanding of why you feel good, will make it possible for you to feel good regardless of the behavior of others. Understanding that the way you feel is really about your Vibrational Relationship with your Inner Being — with the Source within you... gives you complete empowerment and absolute freedom.

Allowing Ease, not Effort

Most rarely align with their true power,
because it seems illogical to them
that there is power in relaxation,
in letting go,
or in love or joy or bliss.
Most people do not understand
that their true power lies in releasing resistance—
which is the only obstacle to their true power.
Most people do not expect their path to great abundance
to be one of ease and of joy.
They have been taught
that struggle and hardship and sacrifice
are requirements that must be met
before the reward of great abundance can be realized.
Most do not understand
that the very struggle
they deliberately involve themselves in,
in their quest for success and advantage,
actually works against them.
There are so many things
that you have been taught to believe
that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe
that it is difficult for you to think your way out.
And that is the reason
that we present this path of much less resistance.
We want you to breathe rather than try,
to relax rather than offer effort,
to smile rather than struggle,
to be rather than do.
For your true power is experienced only from inside…
