The Universe, turns out, is WAY Smarter Than You or Me!

Anthony Dufresne Millennial Issues

I talk a lot about “Letting Go of the Rock”…

…it’s actually one of the core concepts in my philosophy and one of the pillars of my teachings.

The concept, if it hasn’t yet taken up residence in rote memory, is based on the conscious choice to stop resisting the universal flow of things…surrender to the flow and let it take you to where you need to go.

We, as human people, like to think, in the moment, that we know what’s best for us…what actions we need to take to “lead” us to where we want to go…

It’s like we’ve drawn up our own map to our pot of gold…a map with a very specific trail…most of the time having a very straight, or linear path that leads to our chosen goal or objective…

…but as you start out on your journey down your drawn-out path…whadayaknow!!…nature tends to get in the way (nature being the Universe)

There’s a stream blocking your path you were not aware of, so you try to cross it and find out it’s too deep…then you make your soggy way back to shore and sit there and get pissed that the stream is there…maybe even “give up” because your path just won’t work…

…well, there’s a reason why that stream is blocking your path, it’s because you’re not supposed to cross there…you are supposed to hike a couple of miles downstream until you find a place your CAN cross…

…and, lo and behold, on your journey downstream (which you wouldn’t have made if you could have crossed at your original path point), you meet up with another treasure seeker that happens to have some nuggets of knowledge to share that actually help you at a point further on down your path…

…without the diversion (thank you Universe), you would have never run into that person and never received that valuable information that really helped a few days later.

It’s about “ACCEPTING” the wall, barriers, rejections, the “NO’s” in life as NECESSARY and HELPFUL…they are actually sending you downstream to expose you to something you need for your journey moving forward.
