Forcing or Allowing LIfe

 For the past few years I have been practicing allowing my life to unfold as it should without force or push. It is surprising how enjoyable living this way is. You would think that this method of life only works for someone who is retired, but I have written two books that are in the editing stages, plus I grow flowers for the floral business that my wife and I run. We have a very full schedule, but allowing life to unfold as it should made my life much easier.
 With all the talk about pushing through life and grabbing life by the horns, how can allowing life to unfold be so fulfilling? With this question and many more, I thought that I would ask my Inner Voice for guidance. My questions will be in italics and the answers from my Inner Voice will be in normal print. 

 What are the differences between forcing life and allowing life to unfold as it should?
 Look at the word force, it means to push against something, forcing life is to push against life, the question becomes, what are you pushing against? Yes, there will be obstacles in life, but few people are willing to accept that these roadblocks are meant as a place of learning and inner growth. To force your way past these obstacles is to push past the opportunity for a more true understanding that has arisen in front of you. 
 To allow life to unfold as it should is to learn to see a roadblock, and accept the lessons that it has for you. Once the lesson is learned the roadblock will no longer be an issue in your life. If you force yourself through the block you may not learn its important lesson, which will show up in your life again until you finally learn the lesson. 
 Allowing life to unfold as it should is being open to new possibilities that may far exceed your expectations. These possibilities may not be noticed if you are forcing your way through life. 

 People appear to getting along just fine pushing through obstacles. Why change something that works for them?
 When a person is forcing their way through life, they are often so focused that they may disregard important guidance, whether this guidance is physical or spoken through their inner voice. Their commitment to pushing past the roadblock can keep them from experiencing this guidance.

 Why is that important?
  Oftentimes when someone is allowing their life to unfold as it should, they will be open to other ways of thinking, solving problems and allowing better solutions to come into their life. They are not limited by a certain mindset, and they will be open to new experiences benefiting them in positive ways. Remember, forcing is using force to accomplish a task. The focus is on accomplishing the task, and not on the process of accomplishing the task. In allowing life to unfold as it should, focus becomes the process of life; living life with eyes wide open looking to see the many possibilities that are available. How many times have you experienced life by force to only see the ground in front of you. This single minded focus will cause you to miss many options that may be better for you, but you cannot see them because you are focused on pushing your life forward.

 Yes, but allowing life to unfold as it should sounds lazy. What can you say to this?
 If this sounds lazy then it is because you have been living your life through force. To allow life to unfold as it should, is putting your trust in the universe to aid you in any decision, or action that you may take. It must be understood that there is much more going on in your life that you cannot see than you can see. The energy of life will always direct you to the best that life has to offer, if you are willing to allow it to happen. Allowing is getting out of the way so that you can see the unlimited possibilities that are available to you. Imagine allowing as opening yourself up to the never ending stream of love that is within you, then from this place allowing this love to guide you to the best of life. Allowing is not lazy, allowing is knowing that you are a magnet for your desires and through this kind of behavior you will have the ability to let things fall into place for you.

 Do I have to do anything to allow my life to unfold as it should?
 You must learn to trust in the unseen. Trust in the energy of love and through this love you will become open to new possibilities that will be of great benefit to you. This is not sitting on your hands and waiting, that is lazy. Allowing is knowing what you want to accomplish, and understanding that there are forces greater than you at work to help you accomplish your goals. Through this way of living, life will flow smoothly for you as you learn to see guidance everywhere you look, guidance that will help accomplish your task without force or push.

I understand that this maybe a new way of thinking, but it can change the way in which you live your life. If you feel that you must run every red light to accomplish a task it might be time to stop on the yellow light and allow life to unfold as it should. Give it a try and let me know how it works out for you.
