The attempt to control other people is a common phenomenon in our world today. One hears a lot about these so-called control freaks these days. This futile attempt to control others comes from a place of misalignment with your true Self.
Those who are in sync with their Higher Self feel no need to control others. They are in their natural state of happiness, and it is not dependent on what anyone else does or doesn’t do.
But if you’re not connected to your Self, you feel a certain dissatisfaction, a void that nothing else can fill. Everyone knows intuitively that they are supposed to feel good, that it’s their natural state. And when they don’t feel good, they know something is out of whack.
When people get disconnected they often mistakenly believe if they can just control the behavior of others it will make them feel good. But it never works.
First of all, it is impossible to control other people. And even if you managed to do it through force, it would never fill the void within you that’s caused by your own misalignment.
Your problem is not the behavior of others, or even the conditions around you. The real problem is always your own state of disconnection with your true Self - which is the Source of all happiness and joy.
You can watch these people thrashing around, trying to control others in a desperate attempt to make up for their own vibrational misalignment. They’re chasing an illusion, based on a false premise.
The answer, as always, is inside you. Tap into that, and you’ll find the Source of genuine happiness, peace, and joy.
“If you knew your potential to feel good, you would ask no one to be different so that you can feel good. You would free yourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, or control your mate, or control your child. You are the only one who creates your reality.” - Abraham-Hicks
