“You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway.” ~ Steve Maraboli,

More than 2500 years ago, this wise Chinese man called Lao Tzu was trying to teach us a very powerful and valuable lesson: “By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond the winning.”

Even though so many people feel the constant need to control everything and everyone. And even though they desperately try to adjust life according to their views and expectations instead of allowing life to unfold naturally, the truth of the matter is that life is a lot wiser than we think. Life knows a lot more than we do…

Believe it or not, there is a natural flow that life has to follow, and by learning to let go of controlling everything and everyone, you give ourselves permission to go with the flow, no longer against it. Allowing life to nurture you, to lead you, to guide you, and to always make sure that you are walking on your right life path. And in this short yet very profound and inspiring video, Alan Watts talks about this so beautifully. Explaining to us that it is in letting go of control that we actually get back in control. Back to living the life we are meant to live and back to being in alignment with who we truly are.
