“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” –Lao Tzu
It’s so seductive to think that yesterday shapes today and that today will determine tomorrow.
It is a mindset which satiates the egoic desire for safety in the known, yet also limits our possibilities.
Chaos theory says a lot about the unpredictability of supposedly predictable systems.
The good news, then, is that the possibility of randomness means career or life ruts, patterns, or stucknesses can be altered out of the blue.
Letting go of the need for predictability can have many blue-flow effects.
“As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.” –Emmanuel Teney
