We think we want control but that is because we've lost touch with our sense of adventure and are now looking for safe ways to feel alive. Which means we're looking for the outcomes we are already familiar with actually, which means we return to who we were prior to the experience which is counterproductive of what adventure is supposed to be about which is expansion, the evolution of consciousness and the true joy of feeling alive.
Control is the problem not the solution. Because forces of control have invaded our homeland we think we can reclaim our natural way but having more control ourselves but actually control is the disease in the first place. It's so tricky. Control is a mental construct. It takes what it knows and attempts to categorize and normalize things. It is the death of all things beautiful, original, creative and free.
No something deeper within us seeks adventure and to trust something deeper and more true to the infinite nature of life to guide it's footsteps and lead it down paths that FEEL purposeful because they are enlivening and expand the Being experiencing it.
Control is an Egoic construct based in a lack of trust.
If we had a full connection to our Creator or the source of our experience the last thing we would want is control. There's a difference between control and authority. The natural authority we have is self direction and it is effortless and natural, like how we have the authority to move our bodies, to breathe and talk and sing and dance. Natural authority. Control is something done from mistrust. It strangles life in an attempt to have its way. It's like prisons are to people. It's trying to prevent something it fears from happening. It's trying to be sure it can direct life force in a predictable manner. It is not the same as authority. Authority comes from nature, control is something of a mental prison, a restriction of the breath of life.
It seems to me the idea is to become aware of the control structure and expose it for what it is and rather than fight against it with more control, to simple disarm it with our nature. With awareness, nature will automatically disarm control. Similar to how deep emotions rising to the surface will obliterate the control a man may have had over his so-called manly appearance to others and to himself. The natural just needs to rise to the surface and control is lost. And in the process freedom returns, which will be where the natural authority comes from which I believe will always direct the individual down paths that further expand that feeling of being alive and the evolution of their being.
This is why I am so big on being Playful as it operates outside of the control structure. It breaks ALL of the rules and is purely interested in the JOY of BEING ALIVE and making the most of every moment. It is exploratory in nature and creative and as I've said before, it tunes us into our natural genius.
