Letting go is the strongest thing we can do, as the Tao teaches. It is a dynamic that progresses under the surface. What we do with our outward lives is a reflection of this, and almost incidental.
Trust and faith are most important. Faith is the essence of things unseen, according to the Bible. We feel what is coming even before knowing what it will look like. We feel the “wheels” of the Universe moving, moving, and blowing the Spirit through our cells.
Yet, sometimes a vision of what is yet unseen is offered. We see this imperfectly, but enough to allow confidence to grow. Then we are comforted, and though the road ahead be long, it is endurable. We have the patience to wait for what is coming.
Such a vision is a consolation, but also a warning: do not lose faith. The Universe will unfold all according to its own schedule and method. When our own personal emotional and spiritual milestones have been met, and our psychic pathways cleared of debris and made passable, then doors will swing open of their own accord.
It will be clear, obvious, and unmistakable. There will be no doubt or confusion about the next step to take. There will be no lingering inner conflict or discomfort. The movement of the Spirit will be expressing in every sphere, blowing us like leaves in the only possible direction.
Our work is to believe in this perfect unfolding of the Universe, however gradual or discontinuous it may appear, and however slowly it may seem to occur. All that is required must be in place.
Our discipline is to trust, and to live in that trust. We are to take any outward or inward step toward wholeness that is indicated. We are to integrate ourselves and our relationships. We are to release expectations and bindings and not presume to work our own will.
The Universe will accomplish all that is needed on its own terms.
And, it will keep us posted.
