The Edge of Greatness
Have you ever felt like you were on the edge of a cliff barely hanging on or that the next step you’ll surely fall to your death? Sometimes in life when we get pushed to the end we have to choices: Fight like hell to stand our ground or just jump. The scariest thing to do is to just let go and jump! But sometimes that is exactly what we need to do. Often standing our ground where we are and fighting with everything we got even when things are not working is based on our ego. The ego hates change the ego wants to be in control and we as human beings love the façade of being in control with everything in our lives. Often the people that are the most ego driven believe they are in control of everything.
They find comfort in the façade that everything is under their control. The truth is in life we have very little control over anything. I mention frequently that there are two things we have control over: Ourselves and our reaction to others that is it!! No matter how much we believe differently the sooner we recognize this fact and accept it as part of our lives the better off we are moving forward. So much disappointment in our lives comes from life seeming to just fall apart. That feeling of true helplessness is because we created the illusion that we were in control of everything when truly we were not.
Taking that leap, letting go and believing that you can fly, is one of the hardest things we can do in our life but not doing it can lead to much more pain and disappointment than if you actually jumped. Sure there is no guarantee that things will work out. But by letting go you give yourself a chance, stop fighting the world and then questioning why things continue to be difficult or that bad things continue to happen. Remember God/universe gives back to us what we put out there. If all we are putting out there is fighting, pain and disappointment, God/universe will give us more the same.
Take a chance, let go and learn to fly!
