Lisa is one of the friends whom I dearly respect for her confidence. She’s only nineteen but never fears to take on any task that comes her way. Once she is up to do it she is normally committed to see that everything is done.
One of her outstanding achievements was a while ago, when she was part of her university’s Mr. and Miss. University organizing team. She’s outgoing and loves interacting, and therefore, gladly accepted to organize the live performances. However, she has one problem – despite her confidence, any small obstacle in her operations really stresses her and works her up. She feels like things are going out of control.
She gave it her best: she approached musicians, convinced them to fix into her schedules, and successfully did the stressful negotiations she dreaded. It really worked her up, but she did it. She was just a sigh away from relief.
All was going as planned until a day to the event. The main artist, whose presence was being used to hype the event, cancelled his performance due to “unavoidable circumstances”.
This is what Lisa least expected. She felt like she could die. Why did it have to pick her biggest shot? It felt like failure staring at you and laughing at its success in seeing you fail. What was she going to do about the distributed flyers and posters? This was going to be her biggest walk of shame. She was just LOSING CONTROL, unless something was done.
This feeling of losing control is common amongst us, maybe worse or less bad. At times we go through experiences that make us have the feeling of losing control of things around us, and this threatens our success.
However, this feeling of losing control is all an ILLUSION. There is nothing that happens out of our control. Some of us believe that control is an illusion. However, this is not the TRUTH.
You Have The Power To Create And Control Everything Around You
Many will agree with me that we have the power to create, what about the power to control? We are all connected to divine power, thus have some divine abilities. God is in control of everything, and, the highest ability man possesses is Godhood abilities. Therefore, you shouldn’t have the feeling of losing control when you are in control.
When you choose to do something which you believe you can do, you will do and succeed in it.
Intention Controls Results
When you intend to do something, the intention creates what you want. The power of intention makes you desire even things that are out of your control, but, in the end, you still have what you intend to have.
God does not exist outside you to make things happen. All that happens happens within you and God. Once you realize this, you will realize that you create and control everything around you. Therefore, nothing exists outside you to make things happen.
Undesirable things happen to us. We least attract them, we least expect them to be part of the outcomes, but they do happen.
Why do they happen? Are we actually losing control when they happen?
Not really. Things are so much under control; we are simply being moved physically and mentally towards what we want.
In actual sense, you are moving yourself; nothing outside you is controlling things. Your power of intent is arranging and rearranging things through the submissive universe, so as to draw what you want closer to you. The operations of the universe seem independent, but the universe only responds to meet what we desire, and always works in response to our beliefs.

Just to finish my frustrated Lisa’s story; she didn’t back off, she was most relieved when the performances were over. A friend introduced an upcoming musician from the students who seemed talented. She crossed her fingers and accepted because she had no option. He couldn’t fit into the hyped ambiance, though he was less costly, and performed greatly.
He turned out to be a talented performer and cheered the disappointed crowd and turned out better than expected. Both Lisa and the artist were happy at the end of it all and it was more of a win.
Lisa got a personal apology from the turned down artist early the following week. He invited her for a coffee date and assured a commitment to do a live performance for one of Lisa’s events at half the normal rates.
How close is that to Lisa’s initial intentions?
