My dear friends, I read this today and had to share it with you. It is the final prayer in Tosha Silver’s book, Outrageous Openness, and no matter how many times I read it, it always seems so perfect and appropriate, so calming and reassuring.
For you today, and all days:
Something happens after you align with the Divine for a while.
You begin to feel on a cellular level
that things are unfolding exactly
in the way that they should.
At the rate and timing they need.
You start to trust the process.
You relax from the endless pushing
that most of us learned at birth.
On some fundamental, mysterious level,
you just let go.
Not with that bitterness people feel
when they fear the (ego’s) dreams won’t occur.
Not with passivity
as right actions DO get shown.
Rather you relax into this calm curiosity
about where the flow might go.
You’re detached yet somehow riveted
by how the story will unfold.
You feel spaciously receptive
and open to what wishes to come.
You give it all room to blossom.
You trust the Highest,
one way or another,
eventually will unfold.
You know that with God as your Source
you needn’t cling to any one plan
And you’re not clutching a list of desires,
pushing the ego’s agenda even more.
When you’re in cycles of quiet and waiting,
you catch your breath,
knowing the wheel again will turn.
You rest because as the right actions
a LOT will arise to be done.
You wait for the signs and the timing
rather than rip open the cocoon.
You trust that delays might be welcome.
You trust that delays can be good.
You trust that delays are all perfect.
And you stay present
just to witness
your own birth
