Control versus Goal

I have been reflecting on letting go of things that I cannot control in my life. My intuition tells me when it is my ego attempting to control the events and people around me, it will feel irrational in many ways. When I am in this state, I ask myself, “why do I need to control this?” If I do not have a rational or reasonable answer, then I know it’s because of my ego’s need to control events and people around me.

Goals on the other hand are a very different thing. Goals involve missions, passions, callings, and the direction we wish to live our lives. For example, If I wish to attend college, then it is important that I take control and responsibility to apply to colleges, study and take the SAT exam, etc. When I asked myself, “why do I need to control these things?” The answer would be very clear. I wish to move my life forward successfully and I desire an education.

Control is a very tricky thing, and it is within our own minds that we must discern whether the control is for ego’s benefit or it is our desire for betterment of ourselves or our world. May you let go of behaviors that no longer serve the betterment of your life. (Copyright 2019 awakening journey with all rights reserved)
