Over the years that I’ve been teaching the principles of creation, I’ve been asked on countless occasions whether it’s alignment or will that matters the most.
In some of my posts, I talk about effortlessness, surrender, non-resistance, acceptance, etc.
And in some posts, I talk about will, holding your vision, making your goals non-negotiable, and so on.
It can sound a little bipolar at times, and I’ve been accused of flip-flopping on more than one occasion.
But it’s really not a contradiction at all. One of my favorite books, the Tao Te Ching, actually describes flexibility as strength:
so the hard and unyielding belong to death
and the soft and pliant belong to life
an inflexible army does not triumph
an unbending tree breaks in the wind
thus the rigid and inflexible will surely fail
while the soft and flowing will prevail
Tao Te Ching, Ch. 76
The Tao Te Ching is all about the marrying of seeming opposites: light and dark, strength and flowing, deliberate vision and surrender.
Will without alignment is brute force, which breaks at the first real obstacle. Alignment without directed will is passivity, which accepts whatever comes, even if it isn’t what is fully wanted.
When I’m working with a client, I see it as a sort of dance between opposites. One week they may need to relax and let go, while another week they may need to strengthen their vision and focus more often on their goal. I’ve had great success with this approach.
So it’s not so much about which is better, but more about which is appropriate for you where you are now.
Of course, I recognize this is a novel approach and there is quite a bit more to it.
That’s why I’ll be discussing this very topic at greater length during this weekend’s masterclass, Letting Your Vision Prevail.
Your vision is vital to getting what you want in life, but it also requires alignment and surrender.
How these elements all work together is a large part of what I’ll teach you in the class.
