In my previous post I spoke about letting go and that for me it is based on knowing what you should do or basically knowing where you’re going. I also posed the question whether you know your mandate… Let me ellaborate: The word mandate can be interpreted in many ways but when I use the word it is connected to the word efficacy – to know what you must do and the power to achieve it.
From this perspective your mandate is that which you know you must do on this earth. It is something much greater than yourself and could take all of your life to do. It binds all the different parts of your life together and makes you get up in the morning. It is the fire in your belly!
Now let’s bring it back to letting go because this is an ancient path difficult to follow, especially in modern times because of all the distractions and roads that seem tempting but lead nowhere.
So here’s the thing… From my own experience I have found that the more I focus on that which I should be doing and on the way I should be in this world the more I naturally have to let go of the things and ways that do not fall within my mandate. So again I ask do you know what your mandate is? If you are like me you have two hands and to fully grasp your mandate you will need both of them and that means letting go of whatever else you have been holding on to and keeping you from what you should be doing and robbing you of the power to step into your destiny.
Receive your mandate and hold on with everything inside you. The tricky bit is that you will need to decide this everyday! It is not an ephemeral once off decision but a lasting repetitive decision that takes you deeper and deeper every time you choose it.
