There is nothing wrong with making plans for the future unless it prevents us from fully living in the present. Plans are great. At times, however, we can project a specific dream of the future that is so detailed that we are reluctant to accept anything less than that dream. And, what if our dreams conflict with someone else’s dream? Or, even worse, what if our dreams conflict with those that The Divine would have us experience?
We can plan and dream, but at some point we might be better served by turning those plans and dreams over to that which is greater than self, and say, “This is what I think I want. But I don’t always know what is best for me. As I make these plans, I ask for Divine guidance. I do not know what will come of my dreams, but I want to launch out into the great unknown and see what You will bring to me.”
Sometimes it’s difficult to let go of our plans and allow them to play out without our micromanaging them. It is like prying away our fingers, one at a time, ever so slowly. But when we release them and choose instead to live one moment at a time, worry and fear lose their grip on us.
