Has the energy been feeling very intense and confusing right now? It certainly has to me and others with whom I’ve been speaking. The human temptation is to try and figure it out. It’s hard to sit with the discomfort and unknowing and ride it out. It’s not easy to let life flow through us and let it unfold at just the right time in just the right way.
Our Higher Self is our inherently peaceful nature. That’s where all our answers are and all our wisdom resides. When we intentionally, willingly move into into our Higher Selves, we are more able to ride the waves of life. We don’t fight the waves. We do need to attend to all the logistics of human life that are our responsibility and then let go and let the Universe do its job and return a solution to us . . . and not try and figure it out. The “how” is the job of the Universe/God/Source/All That Is. It’s not our job! Which means of course that being human, we have to do this process of letting go and trusting it out over and over and over again – all day long.
I’ve been saying that I’ve been feeling like I’m on a raft adrift in the ocean. The winds have died down and I’m temporarily becalmed. André Gide was a French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. He famously said:
You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
At different times in our lives we feel we are crossing our own individual ocean; and we have lost sight of the shore. We seem adrift, becalmed. We see nothing ahead and nothing behind. This is where we attend to what we need to do each day, we just show up. We stay present. We flow our good feeling – at least 51% – with trust that it’s okay to be in the unknowing, uncomfortable as it is. Our good feeling will eventually flow the currents beneath us and float us just where we need to go. We let go, sometimes in desperation because we have no idea of the next step.
The Universe, our Higher Self, always sees the next step, even if our human mind cannot. We surrender, we let go to that wiser part of ourselves and the whole of All to which we are indivisibly connected. And at just the right time, in just the right way, although we have lost sight of one shore, another one will loom up ahead. And we will take our first steps on our new path.
