The need to figure things out comes from a place of LACK. It comes from a place of NEEDINESS. Both of these states -- lack and neediness -- are barriers to the manifestation of your intentions. Lack attracts more lack, since the lack of your desired intention becomes the focus of your attention. Neediness repels your attractive powers because your desperation attracts more of the same.
In short: the folly of trying to figure out how to manifest something is just as foolish as sitting on your hands and taking no action. Both ways will block the Universe from manifesting your intentions. You don't know how the Universe is going to give you what you want, and you shouldn't worry about it. Your job is trust that you will be provided for, and to take action freely, widely, and without attachment to the result.
