Let life unfold

Sometimes we cling to life. We don’t want it to change. Every little shift in its direction of feels like seismic activity that jolts the foundation of life as we know it.

Change is threatening to the ego. Especially when it comes in the form of loss.

Losing a job.
Losing a loved one.
Losing a deal.
Losing an opportunity.
Losing good health.
Losing sleep.

All this losing can ruin our plans in an instant.

Get that?
‘Our plans’.

Life often has a different plan. The problem is, often times, we don’t listen.

Life’s nature is that of a constant state of unfoldment.

Are you letting it unfold? Or are you trying to wrap duct tape around it and keep it static, predictable, and safe?

See this unfoldment as it is… The way life naturally works for the evolution and expansion of our soul.

Our petty plans be damned. 
In this is life. New life.

Find solace in the unfoldment. 
More good is to come. 
Perfectly on-Plan.
