So many times we think we have “to do” to make it all happen. It’s not that we should stop trying to be productive or to lose sight of our goals, desires, or needs; but sometimes “doing” overrides “allowing.”
It’s common sense that we cannot plan really, because we all know that even when we try, life can throw us a curve ball.
So, what if we were to just focus on the object at hand? The one thing in front of us? Well, then life gets interesting!
We get to be a part of the river, following its flow and sometimes being led somewhere better than we thought we could go.
When we control, prepare, think things out, and think they are the right or the best course of action, lightening can still strike, causing us to go in a different direction.
Rather than panic, we can meet the current when it changes in front of us. Life has a funny way of showing the right path, eventually.

Congrats,I understand from your blog that off late your current thought system seems to have progressively evolved through your own experience.The phrase “LET GO” is a beautiful philosophy of attitude that we all can gain.

Thanks Seeyas saheb for your precious comment.
In a way, yes, everyone has different experiences and learnings from their lives. It is not necessary that what is acceptable to one would also be acceptable and befitting to the the other. But, I feel that somewhere, something is common in each human being and more or less it certainly affects the thought process.
However, I also believe that one should not be rigid and adamant, we should be open enough to test and approve each thought before making it our habit or way of life.
There was a phase in my life when I used to think and act like- “everything is, and should be, under my control.”
I firmly believed that we are doers, creators of our own destiny, we make things happen … we don’t wait for it to happen!
That’s what I had learnt from an early age, in school and by every motivational sports movie I ever watched. So allowing things to happen was never my normal way.
Off late, I realised that it’s nothing but an illusion. Nobody can control everything. Whatever we plan or think, things did not happen as we wish. Hence, I started to believe that sometimes it is better to let go and see what happens. This has been what I’ve been practicing and learning over the past few years.
I am allowing things to happen.
It happens every day, where we think we’re in control but we’re really not. Do we control all the people around us who affect our lives so intimately? Do we control the overwhelming power of nature? There’s so much out of our control that what we think is control is really an illusion.
