We fluctuate between two extremes in our daily lives-the known
and the unknown. The known is our comfort zone, a path where we
are contented, and yet confined. When we operate in the known,
we anticipate, plan, control, and limit ourselves by creating
The unknown, while more vague and daunting, allows us to deeply
believe in ourselves and the wonders of life, trusting, living
in the moment, so we feel amazingly free.
These extremes should be interwoven, allowing us to live in
harmony with others and ourselves. If we choose to live only by
following the path of the known, we then limit our life
achievements and welcome boredom. Everything is neatly prepared
and scheduled, and we fall into a routine that chains us to
limitations and a certain imprisonment.
On the contrary, if we follow only the path of the unknown,
then inner turmoil will appear. We live without many of the
boundaries necessary for us to stay focused, keeping us filled
with illusion or false grandeur, frustration and disappointment.
By living your life with a more balanced blend of these two
poles, we open our hearts to growth by letting go, trusting in
our true nature and connectedness with the Universe.
If your daily life is filled with gaps of uncertainty,
surrender by living in the present, opening yourself to trust.
Then the magic of life will surround you, surprising you with
its beautiful wonders. Stop living your life on a well-organized
agenda. Leave room for surprises, surrender to the magic of life
and trust its inherent goodness.
