When you are feeling lonely and wondering when you are finally going to meet your perfect soul mate, it is hard not to try to rush things and force the situation.
There is a saying in the Tao, “Infinite patience brings immediate results.” This is true when we do our inner work. There is no reason to doubt because this is the law of the universe. This is how energy works, plain and simple.
Many of us don’t like to let go of control and detach from the outcome. If we do that, then there’s no drama. We are used to trying to “make it happen.” When we do that, at least we can say, “Hey, I tried my best!” To find your soul mate, you don’t need to fight.
The truth is that you don’t have to struggle at all. As the philosophy of Tao explains, using force will only lead to resistance in the universe. You don’t have to make anything happen. Have some patience. The love of your life for you might not be living down the street from you. You might live in Atlanta, and he lives in Detroit at the moment.
The universe will take care of it. You will meet at the right time. He might be getting transferred at his job in six months and move to Atlanta. We cannot force things in life. Believe in the principles of Tao. Timing is an absolute. The phrase “being in the right place at the right time” is so true.
If you can learn to let go and detach from the outcome of life’s events, things come much easier than if you fight for it. Surrender control, and you free the universe to bring you whatever you want, allowing you to experience love and find you soul mate.
