We need only look around to see that the blind certainty that so many of us possess is responsible for creating tension and unrest in our lives instead of flow. In a world of discovery, instead of blind certainty, we can relax and let go of our need for things to be a certain way. This does not mean we stop taking action to create important changes in our lives and in our world, but it does mean that we let go of how we think it's supposed to be or how it should turn out. Again, we let go because we don't really know the Grand Design. When we drop our attachment to any outcome, we start feeling that all-important WONDER. We start feeling curious about how it will turn out. The emotional hold that attachment creates melts away, and we are free to engage with others in a more encompassing way. Life gets bigger and certainly easier.
