How Trying Keeps Us Stuck

hamster-wheelI have been trying all my life.  For as long as I can remember I have been trying.  Trying to be good enough.  Trying to make enough money.  Trying to be more evolved.  Trying, trying, trying!  The problem with trying is that it doesn’t get us anywhere.  Trying begets more trying which begets more trying.  You get the idea.  Yoda was right when he said,  “Do or do not.  There is no try!”

What started this train of thought was my blog post about Grace.  In that post, I channeled a message from the Divine.  The post talks about resting in the arms of the Divine and allowing the Divine to take over for awhile.  The thought of that made me weep.   That is when I realized I am trying so hard all the time.  I rarely give the Divine a chance to hold me up.  All my life I have wanted someone to take care of me so I could rest for awhile.  The problem with that is I was asking that of the men in my life.  What an enormous burden that must have been.  I thinks its time to let go and rest in the arms of the Divine today.  I wonder what will happen when I do. . .
