The Spiritual Teachings of Will Farrell

What I love about this clip is it really gets at the heart of what prevents us from experiencing freedom in life. When we have issues with control, whether it be with others, or even trying to control reality (as Will Ferrell did) in order to keep it from getting out of control, then it leaves us in a bind. So much of the Christian faith is letting go of our control mechanisms, letting others be themselves, letting ourselves be ourselves, and learning to accept things and people they way they are (as God has done). The paradox of it all is that when you surrender control, you’re far less out of control and you gain a groundedness that allows you to see things, know things, and change things, that you never could have before.
