The Practice of Being Spontaneous

The practice of letting go of control and excessive planning and instead letting your intuition guide you is a very revolutionary thing to do. Over control and perfectionism are spiritually deadening. They leave no room for joy or for freedom. When we are in touch with ourselves, we are free to experiment and venture into new territories. We are not in a process of discovery when we simply do the same things correctly again and again. We learn from doing new things in new ways and making mistakes. Spontaneity is trusting our instincts, taking ourselves by surprise, and snatching from the clutches of our well-organized routine a bit of adventure, rather than shying away from it.

Action to Take
