In-joy


Looking at quotes from the most amazing Joseph Campbell and was reminded of this one.
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” 
Wow! Do we get this! This simple observation if taken to heart is profound. It is an invitation to “let go.”  Simply, stop expecting to control your life and those around you so that you/I can be safe. 
“The most important decision we make,” declared Albert Einstein, “is whether we believe we live in a friendly or a hostile universe.” 
Once we have declared this as our intention. Let it go. It will manifest through all you perceive in the analytical, linear left brain. Once the left brain feels safe and is busy with friendly, we have the opportunity to play from the right brain. Oh, how the universe loves to play!  Don’t believe me! Try this for yourself. 
In-joy.
