Aha moment – on letting go

Lately the Law of Attraction has me feeling a bit stymied because its very easy for me to slip into compulsive obsessive ways and somehow feel comforted by the fact that actions yield results, but of course we all know that that tends to  have the opposite effect.  So I started paying attention to my patterns – I get into these cycles of utter clarity (normally after meditation), knowing what I want or letting the Universe know what I want, pretending I already have it, time passing me by (as invariably does), getting frustrated that I am not doing anything to “make it happen”, getting into compulsively doing something about it.  As you can probably imagine, these patterns would leave me feeling a bit disenchanted and tired.  Amid my frustration I recently read this amazing post on how letting go (of the illusion of control, perhaps) is how the universe understands our true faith in it…  Or something like that.

The analogy in that post goes as thus –

It’s like when you go bowling.  You can’t knock down the pins with the ball still in your hand. In order to reach your target, you need to let the ball go.  And if you’re stressed about knocking all the pins down, chances are that you’ll miss them.  Same goes for the Law of Attraction.  If we want to attract something, we need to let go of our focus on it.

The ball won’t hit the pins until we let it go.

So let it go…

Unwavering faith in God/Universe/The big guy in the sky is key.  Irrespective of the name you call it, have faith that somehow, sometimes out of thin air, what is meant for you will come looking for you.  And it will change life as you know it.  But that is true for everything (I’ve been thinking of the butterfly effect a lot lately).

By faith, I don’t mean folded hands, or rituals, its about your ability to be more patient.  Patience is not just about waiting for something… it’s about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.

Peace & Love

I keep asking the Universe to give me signs to indicate if I’m on the right path, and when I have the patience, I get them. Some days I ask for dragonflies, some days I ask for rain, some days I ask for yellow cars, and most days I ask for roses, my all time favorite flowers. So today when I least expected it, I got my sign, and a big bunch of roses welcomed me home after a long productive Monday.

Makes me think of one the most profound quotes by Victor Hugo –

“Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.”

-Victor Hugo

Somehow all I can say is – Thank you, Universe!!

Peace & Love

Although I’m very irked by the whole ONE day for Love deal, I had the most wonderful day possible, with surprises that I hadn’t expected, and expected events that didn’t happen (Just yet?), but at the end of the day, I am in love all over again. The kind of love that makes you hopeful, that it only takes one second for the Universe to bless you with everything you’ve been hoping for (and more).
Even once you’ve taken off he rose tinted glasses, Love is everywhere, whether it is your parents, your best friends or (best of all) even yourself, there is ALWAYS love around you waiting to be noticed. So as I get ready to turn in, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed and tongue-tied, and when words don’t come easy, I rely on words of the Greats who knew their way around the typewriter.
What better poem that the one I chanced upon today – a perfect synchronicity. A poem about a man who loved a love so, it made the angels envious.
Annabel Lee By Edgar Allan Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
   In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
   By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
   Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
   I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
   Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
   My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
   And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
   In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
   Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
   In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
   Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
   Of those who were older than we—
   Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above
   Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
   Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
   In her sepulchre there by the sea—
   In her tomb by the sounding sea.
I hope that this year brings a love that even Angels in heaven envy.
Until next time, Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤
