A quote from A Course in Miracles
Here A Course in Miracles is talking about attachments; because when you are not attached to the result, then you are more aware of the doing instead of the achieving. This means you are practicing infinite or endless patience, this patience is the patience of God. So when you have it, it means you are connected with God.
Dr. Bob Rotella a famous mind coach for several pro golfers tells us in his book “Golf is not a game of perfect”
“In golf as in life, you have to look at your target with soft eyes, confident about the result, but without any attachment, this takes away the pressure of executing a perfect shot and raises the chances of making an great shot”
Dr. Rotella is talking about the same concept as A Course in Miracles, to focus on the result, but to let it go, in other words “Let go and let God”. When you are not attached to the result, you are showing you have the confidence that you are going there, but if it does not happen, then you know that there are other perfect plans for you, and that an infinite intelligence knows better, what is best for you.
When you practice infinite patience, then you are practicing infinite Faith, not only faith in the results, but faith in God, the faith that tells you that everything is part of a perfect plan. When you practice infinite patience, you know deep inside of you that:
“Everything happens for my own sake”
This is the ultimate faith, this is the infinite faith A Course in Miracles talks about, a faith that creates immediate results, because when we are not attached to the results but focused on the target, and know inside of us that God has a perfect plan for me, then the results will show up, this way we will be able to achieve our goals better than before. Being anxious about the result, produces stress, and that takes us away from the goal and takes our attention on the thoughts we are having about it, the thoughts that most of the times are thoughts of failure instead of success. These failure thoughts we have when we are attached to our goal,create failure, because you start to focus on those thoughts instead of just be focused on the goal itself, and where your attention is focusing then the results will go on that direction.
So next time you feel anxious about a result of something you want, let go and let God.
How? Focus on the goal, and be Patience
