Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not upon your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.
Who are we to know anything? We think we understand and we think we know, but how can we really know anything? The Lord knows. Recently, i’ve been adopting the habit of answering any questions with either, “God only knows,” or “God-willing…” Because that’s much closer to the Truth!
2+2=4? God only knows!
Where are you from? God only knows!
What time is it? God only knows!
Letting go of our sense of ‘knowing’ is a great way of relinquishing ego and the illusion of separation. If you ask two people and they give different answers based on their so-called knowledge and life experience, that creates separation between the people. However, every person has the ability to answer “God only knows,” or “I, of myself, know nothing.”
Simple humility goes a long way. And humility also opens our hearts and eyes to appreciate the magnificence that is before us.
When we think we know everything…that’s when we are in real trouble. That’s when we label everything, allowing the mind to determine our experience rather than experiencing directly the purity and wholeness and spontaneity of the moment. The Moment is always Divine; whether we surrender to that Divinity and allow ourselves to experience the Splendor is another question. The ego loves to label and judge and position itself; when we let all of that go, we have the bliss of being.
We don’t need to know anything. All there is to go is let go. Trust completely. Have no fear – the Lord is near! God is good 🙂
