Our Need To Control

We seek to control our lives when we do not trust, when we do not love. Our ego, perceiving it’s self to be vulnerable and insecure, uses control in an effort to protect itself. At the root of our need to control, we find fear.

It may be fear of the unknown. Fear of not coping. Fear of loss. Or possibly even fear of looking stupid. And as our efforts to control other people and events invariably fail, our fear increases.

Trust, on the other hand, is a quality of the soul. While control is a tool of the mind, trust and faith are aspects of the heart.  

When we trust enough in life to give up our need to control, we can relax and open to the flow of energy in our lives. This brings peace of mind.

    Hi Kate Thanks for your compliments on my campaign.It has been hard to galvanize people into doing something on the issues I campaign against .. although one of the drawbacks is that the people we are up against, keep all of us apart on purpose…sort of like `divide & conquer` style – which has worked for years – not now though, in the age of internet, etc … Having met up with some of the other clients of the legal profession, like me, I helped put together a co-ordinated campaign against the legal fraternity`s lobbying power, and we seem to have progressed quite a bit but our work has revealed that those who are supposed to serve the Law in Scotland, are seemingly, the most dishonest !Theres a lot more though, to what I and others have been through, some of it quite harrowing – more of this to come in further posts …Hope your having a great weekend !Peter
