LIVING WITH THE UNKNOWN Light Omega Newsletter



Many are facing personal circumstances today which involve dealing with the unknown in significant areas of life.  Surrender to the unknown involves trust in the invisible.  It involves a connection with one’s deeper self that holds the truth of Divine reality.

-------------------
This is a time in which much is changing and much needs to be let go of.  A new energy of light is transforming the Earth and calling to itself all that can resonate with it, asking that all that cannot be let go of.  This is the reason for all the letting-go-s that are taking place.  On one level it is about receiving the new.  On another level it is about being willing to trust what is happening even when the new has not yet made itself visible.  It is the interim between letting go of the old and the arrival of the new that creates a passage into the unknown, a passage that is essential to the embodied self in its deepening relationship with God.

Surrender to the unknown involves trust in the invisible.  It involves a connection with one’s deeper self that holds the truth of Divine reality.  Such surrender is most difficult for one who has become accustomed to relying on their own efforts in life and on the sense of control that they have brought.  For such a person, ‘doing’ in order to bring things about, has been a central feature of life, and waiting or feeling helpless for even short periods of time has been highly avoided.  Yet, even where the emphasis on control has not been a large part of the conscious self, even then it has been part of the unconscious self.  For the human experience as it has evolved over time has given the ego great power to manage life, and this power has been used to insure that what one desired could come into existence through one’s own effort and will.  Now, in the presence of great change, that ego-will must be surrendered to the will of the soul, and whatever helplessness or waiting occurs must be embraced for whatever period of time becomes necessary.  This is not a proscription for passivity, but for waiting in a state of Divine trust where this is needed.
