In examining power, I can’t ignore what I see as the ultimate power. It goes by many names – God, Goddess, Source, the Universe, Spirit, Mother Earth and so on.
It is debated whether or not this entity actually exists or if it’s a human-made concept. I’m no theologian and only have my own experience to work off of. I go back and forth on it myself, and yet, am reaffirmed that whatever you want to call it (I use the words the Universe) does exist when synchronicities, miracles and anomalies of events happen.
Some could say that those instances are purely instances chance based on some sort of statistical metric. There can be a lot of brain power to go into whether or not something that happens is actually an “act of god” or we can let go of the attachment to understand and simply trust.
Using our intelligence, logic and control appear to be these really powerful forces in our world. However, the opposites – unattachment, allowing and trusting – are actually more so because when we do that, we partner with this entity, this power, larger than ourselves.
Today, I scheduled an online co-working session so I could get something done that I was going to procrastinate on. At exactly the time of my session, my internet went out. I missed the start of the session and had to schedule a new one for 15 minutes later. I ended up making a great connection with the person in the second session.
When that first session didn’t happen, I did not get angry. I let it go and moved onto what I could do which was schedule a new one at the next available time slot. It pains me when we constantly see unattachment and not responding with anger or fear or instant action as weak. In a society of constant motion for the sake of motion and reaction for the sake of reaction, we could stand to be in the power of trust and unattachment more.
I write everyday because it allows me to voice what is at the surface. Once that is out of my head, I can dig in another layer deeper. My daily writing practice has been my greatest exploration of self and humanity. Sign up here to receive these thought nuggets in your inbox on the daily.
