Surrender to the Mystery

Day 35


I surrender to the mystery of not-knowing how things will turn out.

I let go my need to have certainty and control.


None of us can know with any certainty what tomorrow may bring.  The best we can do is count on it arriving and then let ourselves be accepting of the unknown.  In a world where ‘taking control’ and ‘being in charge’ are held in esteem, it can be hard to accept the I-don’t-know factor that is innate to life.  Choosing and acting upon our choices is necessary but so is allowing things to unfold in their most natural, resistant free way.   The mysteries of life were once held sacred, revered as those conditions where everything and nothing resides, where the Divine resides.  It would serve humanity well to again embrace the mystery of not-knowing as a sacred trust placed in the heart of God.  When we surrender that need to know and the need to control, we allow ourselves a rare chance to breathe, minds free, hearts open.  We can experience the natural rhythms of life as they move thru us.   When we surrender to the mystery we find serenity, comfort, and ease.   Today I will catch myself having controlling, need-to-know thoughts and immediately release them.  I will feel the pressure leave me, as my head lightens, my shoulders drop and my stomach relaxes.   I will allow my grasp to be freed and give (at least one) of those reins to the Universe to hold.
