Promise of a new Day

If we try to hard to force others to live in our world, because we think it is the real world, we are doomed to disappointment.
—William Glasser, M.D.—

The desire to control other people, all situations and each outcome to benefit ourselves is a human compulsion, and one destined to foster frustration. Our need to control others is addicting, but our condition is not hopeless. “Letting go” is a learned behavior. Like any habit, practice will make it a natural response. Freedom to fully respond to any experience can only be attained when we

sacrificed the outcome to whatever the bigger picture dictates.

To be enthusiastically, creatively alive means responding to the pulse of the moment, which means following the unself-conscious inner urging rather than the

self-protecting and consciously manipulative ego. Our burdens are lightened each time we act free from the weight of the ego.
letting go of others will lift my spirits high today.
