I know a person who decided to stop being a control freak ...

in #mindset5 years ago

When my friend Bill first talked about letting go of control it was something that I had not given much thought to. Personally I considered that being in control of one's life was normal and completely okay. I considered that I was no different to others when it came to choice of home, location, clothes, interests job, diet and friends. Much better than anyone else organising my life.

However, my friend Bill was going down a very different path. He is a director of films and like all directors he was into is controlling every detail of movie making. Understandable! However, several years ago before he started interviewing knowledgeable people in science, religion and spirituality for his film on intuition, he decided not to write a list of who's who to talk with, instead he was going to listen to his instincts for guidance.

Bill really wanted to feel what it was like not to rely only on logical reasoning. Right thought his friends, this is going to be a good show.

He recounts that when he first started interviewing he flew to India because this felt like the right place to start. The unnerving thing was that when he arrived and was in a taxi he had no idea where to go and who to interview. There was a little bit of fear inside him at this stage. But he held in there and as the taxi drove to the hotel he happened to look at a big billboard advertising the Yoga Institute. Bill asked the taxi man to drive them to this place. He got his interview and the immense feeling of satisfaction.


Every interviewee in his 3 year journey gave him a recommendation off another expert to talk with. He travelled from the East to the West, visiting many countries talking with a wide variety of interviewees accumulating hours to make his film. More than anything his aim to gather an unbiased view of intuition was achieved. It was up to viewers to gather all the information in his movie and decide on agreeing or not agreeing. Most of all he wanted to find out.

Bill changed a lot during the making of PGS, Intuition Is Your Personal Guidance System. He will be the first to admit that he continues to balance his intuition skills with his need to control.

Could I have done what Bill did? I think we all can.

"Listen to institution, it guides"

Cheers and Blessings


Beautiful American Native proverb.
I think we all should to listen to intuitions.

We would all be so better off if we did.

we are kind of conditioned to control, to be in control, but that really does stop us from listening to ourselves. We need to just have faith in our abilities, in our inner self directing us, because when we do we open ourselves up to the universe providing for us, great post xxxx

Thank you @truckie-family and wise words that I so agree with. I have become very conscious of my intuition in the last several years. I believe I always followed it but was not aware what I was doing. That does that make sense?

Oh, such wisdom in the proverbs. I learned early on that you cannot control people or situations the way you want to all the time. It is better to work with them than try to control.

Makes or a healthier you.


Everyone has his/her own way of doing things which makes the world an interesting place.

Howdy angiemitchell! lol..I like that American Indian proverb, I almost put that on one of my posts. That was very courageous for a control freak to take that step that Bill did!

Hi janton, it was, it important for his own spiritual journey in understanding intuition as well as making a first rate movie.

Makes you wonder what would have happened if he hadn't stepped out in faith like that!

It does actually janton. Bill has progressed in leaps and bounds.

And that's what he shares in his movies right? There is more than one I think?

And that's what he shares
In his movies right? There is

Yes janton, he goes on a journey in his film telling his story finding out what intuition is. It is very interesting and informative.
