What happens when your plans fall apart? Are you obsessively seeking to find that “special someone” who will finally make you happy? Have you lost your job or feel that you are in danger of that?
Oh, yeah! These are the times that try us.
We work so hard to plan everything out so that we are entirely covered, so that we know exactly what will happen next. And we may invest all of our time, money, and emotionality into really nailing all of that down really tight so that we will have true, dependable security! We may fear that if something is out of place, or if something is not under our total control, or if we don’t have just what we fully believe that we need at the moment we need it, then we’re screwed.
If the world that we have constructed so diligently with so much forethought and patience that we expect to fully support us—if all that falls apart, then it may seem that there is nowhere to go but to nerve-wracking fear of the unknown.
“Oh, my God! What’s next? Where will I be safe? How can I get along without ……..?”
There can be nothing scarier than being thrust into the unknown—the proverbial being flung into hell in a hand basket! How stressful when the world that you have built to fulfill your expectations even gets a crack in it. It’s so easy to explode into a real panic—from tiny or annoying to horrendous!
There has to be a better way!
Actually, there is.
Now I am not saying that you shouldn’t plan, or make your intentions. Oh, my God, you should do that in order to live here on Earth.
But the real question is: where do you get your security from? If your security arrives from knowing exactly what will happen according to your plans, your expectations, well then, how often does that really work for you? Maybe for a little while. But as you know, things have a way of falling apart when you least expect it.
Maybe you just got fired from your job from out of the blue. Or you had a car accident that totally changed everything. Perhaps you suddenly got blind-sided by really terrific bills and have no clue how to pay them. Oh, yikes!
But here is the solution:
You actually have the most incredible Friend following you around all the time, and I mean ALL the time. This Friend is tireless in what It wants to give you and how to support you for your very, very greatest good. Uh-hm.
But the thing is, you never know just how things are going to turn out. So, if you want to actually thrive with all the changes and upheavals, you are just going to have to roll with the punches. That means that in your most amazing personal relationship with this very great Friend, you will need to be totally trusting. That Friend, of course is your own beloved Soul!

So, this means that when things seem to fall apart according to your own plans and expectations, instead of panicking and losing your focus, instead you breathe deep and lay back in neutral as you just wait for the next step of this tremendous adventure to present itself. www.SoulAnswer.com/heart_breath.html And in this very special neutrality of mind and emotions, we lay in wait as we put up our very attentive subtle antennae to recognize the next step when it comes along. www.SoulAnswer.com/soul.html .
This process is kind of like magic. You stay in that incredible subtle place that is like a focused meditative awareness until you feel moved, or hear, or just KNOW which way to go. You stay in that amazing energy flow as you actually dance with what is being handed to you, step by step by your Beloved. Solutions can come bit by bit or all at once from your Soul, from Its very milieu—the Unkown. You feel your Partner guiding you, being very aware of synchronizing with every step. And with this staying in total sync with the Unknown, the Creative comes to serve you in ways that you never could have believed possible. The wonder of it all may take your breath away! This is Living the Unknown.
It is a very special art that is available to everyone. You just need to switch your conscious awareness from needing total control and absolute expectations to become secure in allowing, trusting your total security to your own Beloved, your Soul to bring “magic” out of the Unknown for you.
Now, to do this you may have to work through your habitual fears, or your way of thinking that things “should be,” or that they always happen a certain way. The Incredible Creative solutions that spring from the Unknown will definitely come in the most surprising ways. But that is the pure adventure, that is the flow, that is the loving trust that develops between you and your Beloved. You will be amazed at how your Beloved moves you to your greatness and your full freedom. Then when fulfillment comes in these most zig-zaggy ways, you might just notice that was Soul’s plan all along!
Let go, trust, stay aware and follow into lands Unknown.
Yogi Bhajan always said, “The Unknown is known to me.” And so it is!
Lots of Love,
