The universe works with you once you let go and accept what is.
Once you allow the flow of things to unfold in the moment, and remove the negativity of fighting the reality of what has already happened, then things come together without the need to keep trying to make it happen.
It is our resistance to what already is that causes the negative thought, the negative vibrations, the negative emotions and we become those thoughts, reactions and emotions. Then we wonder why things have not happened or turned out how you imagined.
Stop imagining a future, stop fighting what is and allow the flow of this moment. Let the universe work with you.
Of course, your mind will tell you this is all nonsense, but worth a try at least.
People are always searching for ways to fix or heal relationships or friendships, for example, a way to engineer an outcome to get things to be a certain way that there ego or mind wants.
There lies the problem, if it does not evolve through letting things be and letting go, then it is not meant to be and is not natural. Things that are engineered are not genuine, they are negative and of no soulful substance.
Relationships, friendships, work, life situations and so on, if they are forced, if there is pressure, manipulation, coercion they will never last. When we are 100% genuinely ourselves, conscious, and at peace, then true connection with other souls comes. There is a positive flow of energy, the universe works its magic, things unfold.
We look to engineer, yet we should leave things to be and see what comes.
