Control

 

When you define the territory, you’re no longer in divine territory.

Tama Kieves in Inspired and Unstoppable, p192

You are the creator of your own reality, and so you are not in jeopardy. You do not need to control the behavior of others in order for you to thrive. Your attention to things that you think they do that keeps you from your thriving is, in fact, what keeps you from your thriving… It is not what they do to you; it’s what you do to you in fear of what you think that they will do to you.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Philadelphia, PA on May 12, 2005

Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

Charles Bukowski

A man needs a little madness, or else he never dares to cut the rope and be free.

Zorba the Greek

As long as something wants to arise, let it. As long as something wants to last, let it. As soon as something wants to pass, let it.

Shinzen Young

You don’t have to worry about what their vibration is if your vibration is one of connection. Because if your vibration is one of connection — you’re going to dominate the vibration. This is the way you learn your relationships. The thing that most people do not understand, is that you get to control the way you feel, because you get to choose the thoughts you think. Most people think that they only have the option of responding to the circumstances that surround them. And that’s what makes them attempt the impossible, which is to control the circumstances around them, which only feeds their feeling of frustration and vulnerability because it doesn’t take very much life experience to discover you can’t control all of those circumstances. But you can control your vibration. And when you control your vibration, you’ve controlled everything that has anything to do with you.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in El Paso, TX on Thursday, March 28th, 2002

Surrender the need to control everything, because in actual fact we can’t, and the universe always has a better idea for us anyway!

Annie Zalezsak 21 February 2012

You are the creator of your own reality, and so you are not in jeopardy. You do not need to control the behavior of others in order for you to thrive. Your attention to things that you think they do that keeps you from your thriving is, in fact, what keeps you from your thriving... It is not what they do to you; it's what you do to you in fear of what you think that they will do to you.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Philadelphia, PA on Thursday, May 12, 2005

The closest to being in control we’ll ever be is in that moment when we realize we’re not.

Brian Kessler

Nothing is more debilitating than to care about something you can't do anything about. And you can't do anything about your adult children. You can want better for them, and maybe even begin to provide something for them, but in the long run, you cannot do anything about someone else's vibration other than hold them in the best light you can, mentally, and then project that to them. And sometimes, distance makes that much more possible than being up close to them.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Ashland, OR on Saturday, July 19, 2003

Today I know that I cannot control the ocean tides. I can only go with the flow… When I struggle and try to organize the Atlantic to my specifications, I sink. If I flail and thrash and growl and grumble, I go under. But if I let go and float, I am borne aloft.

The Daily Guru

It is pointless to get your knickers in a twist if a certain person fails to react the way you want. It is best to avoid people and situations that you know drive you crazy. Remember to vote with your feet. If a situation is untenable or unchangeable, walk away.

from Life Was Never Meant to be a Struggle, by Stuart Wilde

Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish Playwright

You can tell them that you can't change the direction of the wind. But you can control the setting of the sails.

Elizabeth Kuebler-Ross

While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.

Benjamin Franklin
