Bob Fickes ~ Patience: The Art of Letting Go

Sometimes we try so hard to make something happen. For weeks we focus on it and try to make it happen. Then one day we feel so frustrated that it didn’t happen that we give up. As soon as we give up, the thing that we are looking for happens. Amazing! I have noticed this many times in my life! As soon as I give up, it finally happens! Why is that?
When we focus so much, our mind grabs hold of our desire and won’t let go. We literally strangle the thing we want so much that it creates an obstacle that blocks it from happening. Really the universe is designed to bring us everything we want.

The real problem starts with our focusing too much! Focusing too much creates a block. We get so frustrated that we tie our self in knots. We feel tight and get stressed out. Nothing can happen if we are stressed out. The stress we feel materializes and we get more angry that the universe isn’t working! Our ego wants something so intensely that we get stressed out and this makes the universe get stressed out! Our own stress is tying the universe in a knot! Only when we can let go and let it happen can the universe move and bring it to us.
Love is the key. If we give love to the universe instead of forcing the universe to do it, then the universe can bring it to us. Love is inviting. Focus is demanding. No one likes to be forced to do anything. The universe is just like us. It doesn’t like to be forced to do anything.
Lao Tzu once asked the question, “Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear?” Patience is the key. Trust the universe enough to allow it time to materialize what you want. The universe is always working, but when we push too much, the universe gets stressed out and can’t work. When you have a desire, relax and trust that it will happen. Give the universe time to reorganize. Be patient. The universe will move more quickly without your interference!
