When it is realized that we have no power over anything but ourselves. Life is just a bit easier. We do not control the light nor the dark. We do not control the tides nor do we control the weather. When man decides he wants or thinks he controls something it leads to death, destruction and detriment. So when we let go and let God, our shoulders are lighter. The weight of the world is not upon us. We can breath. The truth is no matter how one perceives it, God and this creation is in his hands.
Remember not the former things,
nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert
