A friend and I have been having several intense conversations on the art of just being. Through our talks, we’ve come to the celebrated conclusion that we really don’t have to do too much….life will take care of itself.
Now don’t get it twisted - this type of “just being” doesn’t mean to sit and do absolutely nothing. The type of “just being” we were discussing means living in your truth, trusting that the space you’re in is where you are supposed to be at the moment, and believing that what is meant will be.
Whether it’s relationships/friendships, careers, hustles, goals, etc. – all you have to do is control what you can control and let the rest unfold. To support this “just being” theory, my friend and I thought back to the times when we had to force certain feelings, when we jumped the gun and took matters (that were clearly out of our control) into our own hands, how we pushed ourselves to grow weary of situations prematurely instead of waiting for our true feelings to surface which in turn aborted a valuable lesson that needed to be learn, and how we jumped through hundreds of hoops to make situations change instead of being still and waiting on the Divine to step in. Reminiscing on all of those times helped us to come to the simple conclusion that “doing the most” breeds stress and goes against our faith. But by “just being” - we are accepting what is and trusting the process that leads to what will be.
Just think back to the times in life when you kept going overboard for something or you made a move before it was your time, and the results weren’t favorable. Also think back to a time when you took your hands off of a situation and trusted that it would be handled….and just like that – whatever you needed handled, got handled….and if it didn’t, it wasn’t what you needed anyway.
I’m not sure about you all, but it seems the more I “just be” - the easier things flow. I’ve learned over the years that I don’t have to get even with anyone, I don’t have to go overboard, I don’t have to show anyone who I am, nor do I have to prove my worth. All I have to do is handle what I can handle, stay in tuned with my faith, and just be. And my just being and playing my part allows the Universe/God to do what it does best - intervene…..and everything falls where it’s supposed to.
