What does it mean to let go and let God?
It means that you do the preparation and you let God take care of the rest.
When you slack on the preparation, you’re not going to get the results that you want.
When you over prepare and try to muscle your way through everything and get the exact result you want, you’re not going to get what you want; usually.
To let go and let God means that you do your part and the Divine does it’s part.
The relationship we have with the Divine Life Force is just like any other relationship. When it meets in the middle is where there is health & where there is love.
When you take your efforts, your talents, your skills, and everything you bring to this life, and you give 100%, knowing that your best effort, and all that you are, is only 50% of the equation; and you let the Divine come in with it’s plans for you and all that it created you to be and do it’s 50%, it’s actually doing it’s 100%. You’re each doing 100%; but you each play a role in that relationship and together you create the outcome. Together you create what you are meant to be, who you are meant to be, and your experience in this life.
If you look at your life and see in what ways you are trying, trying, trying, trying too hard to manipulate the outcome, chances are it’s time to let go and let God in your life.
Likewise, if you’re sitting back and watching opportunities pass by you and not acting on them, God is doing it’s part, it’s coming in and giving you 100%. You’re not doing your part there to step up and meet the Divine in the middle.
So ask yourself which side am I on? Am I giving 100%? Am I using all of my talents & abilities? Am I really going for it in life? Am I taking risks? Am I engaging?
And am I also, simultaneously, letting go of the outcome? When you combine these two, you’re going to have magic.
