If you are attempting to control Life solely through your physical action, you are setting yourself up for failure. Positive life experience is created through a positive mental attitude supplemented with whatever action you are capable of. Nothing more is needed. Nothing more could be needed.
Nobody controls their life through physical action alone. There is always a mental/spiritual aspect to every experience.
If there is an undue amount of emphasis on physical action then there is a greater chance of developing negative mental tendencies, such as paranoia and depression, because it doesn’t take much life experience to realize how little our physical actions actually control. An undue amount of focus on physical action also creates lots of unnecessary action, usually in the form of attempting to push things this way and pull things that way to try to make everything work. Yet very little positive experience is created in this way. For example, a person may use physical action to set up a store to sell stuff, but they cannot use physical action to ensure people come into the store or buy the stuff they’re selling.
And yet how much energy is spent on trying to physically control the very things that we are incapable of controlling? The unnecessary physical action of attempting to control and the mental worrying that comes with the inevitable failure is one of the prime reasons people get tired out from Life. There is simply no end to the actions we will think are necessary to protect us from our vulnerability. It is a bottomless pit of misery, should we decide to march down the path of control.
It’s pretty clear then that two choices arise out of the undeniable fact that nobody is capable of controlling Life through physical action alone. Either we develop positive trust in all the aspects of Life we do not control, or we develop negative trust in those aspects. Whether we use science, religion or spirituality or whatever other tool to create that trust is irrelevant. But in order to create a positive Life experience we must positively trust in all the aspects of Life we do not physically control.
We must let go of our attempts to control everything and live in an open state of vulnerable trust. We are vulnerable. That is an undeniable fact. No amount of money or education or technology can protect us fully or allow us to physically control all of Life. So we must develop positive mental trust in the universe and Life at large.
(This obviously falls in line with the whole Law of Attraction and creating our reality idea. It is not our physical action alone that creates our experience, but mostly our beliefs, emotions and vibration.)
