Are We Strong Enough to Enter ‘Don’t Know Land’?

Sunday, June 20th, 2021

Can we at least agree to make space for finding the gift in the moment? Can we agree to affirm this next opportunity to participate in life? Breathing out, can we give thanks for all the wonder, joy and mystery that is so far beyond the capacity of our understanding? Can we agree to not knowing everything? Can we humble ourselves in the gift of this moment, of this opportunity to participate, and pledge ourselves to forever aim in the direction of not causing harm?

Do I have the strength, courage, and discipline to engage in practices of surrender? Or do I hold a sense of security from what I “have“ or what I “do“. I can enter the creative experience when I surrender from my thoughts of “knowing“. When I take refuge in the land of “I don’t know“ I humbly surrender to the Mystery and the creative. I surrender the thoughts of my separateness, a separate body, a separate mind… surrendering into awareness. Surrendered into the consciousness of this fleeting moment I find “fullness“. No longer worried. No longer concerned with thoughts of “not enough“ or “pride“. Just surrendered into “being“. Touching this “just being”, I find true peace. That space beyond division, beyond thoughts of “subject versus object”, that space where awareness wakes up to the illusion of separateness.

My fight is to stand up for the choice of “not fighting”. That’s the paradox.
