May I learn to relax, come to trust, & be guided by the Great Mystery.
As I reflect on the beginning of another calendar year, I am tempted to make a laundry list of everything I need to do to become whole. But this year, something’s different. Making another New Year’s Resolution list doesn’t interest me. It seems vain, controlling and too lifeless.
Instead, I hear the whisper of nature through the wisdom of this tree invite me to let go, to relax, to stop trying to figure everything out.
This New Year I am being called to be amazed at the Great Mystery that guides and enfolds all of creation.
And trust that if I listen to the Great Mystery speaking silently within and around me, I will truly be free.
