Stop Trying To Figure It All Out
Maybe the great lesson in life is not how to have the best time, but how to stop worrying about what the ‘best’ even is. Maybe we need to stop figuring out all the answers and just exist, in the present. Because life can’t be figured out. You will never “figure it out.” There is no one road to happiness, wealth, or success.
It does not help to always want to figure everything out. That’s the by-product of split energy not tended to. We forget that life is a continual journey and we could certainly do ourselves a favor by looking towards what’s coming with excitement.
You could not possibly have all the answers so learn to embrace the unknown as you go on and discover what this journey has to offer.
Misguided Beliefs Create Conditional Love
When we get obsessed with trying to figure everything out, we enforce false belief systems that create misaligned destiny that will keep us from walking through life with wonder. It produces conflict in relationships because we are defending and guarding misguided convictions.
Misguided beliefs keep us from acknowledging the love we have for one another because we are focusing on the conditions that should be, in order for us to love them. We convince ourselves that we have this all worked out.
"This is the ultimate way, so you must listen to me in order for this to work. And most absurdly, you must agree with me so that we can make the world a better place, or else." The pressure then is to exert the condition on others in the hope to create that preconceived outcome where we can all be happy. "And if you do not comply, then you are the problem, not me."
Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop trying to figure out how we feel, and see what happens.

Allow Things To Just Be
Everything does not have to be figured out in order for us to live a joyful, blissful life experience. It goes against the fundamental property of the universe, which is diversity; difference and variety. Diversity makes synergy dynamic. That's why diversity is so wonderful. Not as a means of separation but as an avenue of coming together, despite the condition.
Only you know what works best for you, what feels good to you. No one else is standing in your shoes. Life is not passivity, but acceptance of where you are and what can happen. Not standing on the sidelines of every moment, but knowing that you can only do so much. And when you take some of that pressure off yourself, and off others, then you allow things to just be.
Historical events have shown that war and separation, in the name of peace, have not benefitted us. It has resulted in untold amount of anguish and suffering. You cannot assert your Self at someone else's expense, no matter how clear that picture is playing out in your mind. This kind of approach can never lead to anything positive. When a perspective is based on mistaken assumptions, the consequence is often a misleading conclusion.
All of us are continuously reaching towards our personal alignment with Source. And that alignment can't be achieved by contingent to anyone else figuring it out for you or you trying to figure it out for others. Everything is in the process of evolving. As we all reach forward to our individual alignment, we get to live out the life that we are here to experience.
We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.
