Trusting the Universe
I’m a fan of the Universe. And I’m a believer in trusting the Universe to do its thing. But…I’ve had some disappointing set-backs of late and they have gotten under my skin. To be honest, these blows have left me feeling a bit wind-taken-out-of-my-sails, a bit defeated, a bit discouraged. It would be safe to say it’s set off a fair amount of catastrophizing on my part (never pretty). And it’s all felt crappy.
So my question is this: how do I reconcile these defeats along with my belief in the Universe doing its thing? It seems easy to trust that “the Universe is unfolding as it should” (Max Ehrmann) when life is revealing itself in the ways in which you want. But the challenge, to my heart, is to trust the Universe when life feels like its unfurling, unraveling, coming unglued.
Do you trust the Universe to do its thing? If so, how do you reconcile that trust in the Universe with the things that occur in your life that feel opposed to what you want?
