Life … another name for the ONE SELF, functions perfectly when not tampered with by the analyzing and conditioned mind most people refer to as ‘me’. This requires that you continuously fall empty-handed into the Infinite-safety-net of Truth. It means that ‘all’ control mechanisms are totally and permanently turned off. Then the pristine and silent gears of Life will orchestrate your experiences flawlessly.
The mind or false-self-identity fears this ‘letting go’ more than anything since it represents the ‘real’ death of its usefulness in its present status as director/dictator of your life. Controlled by the mind your life is at best dysfunctional and at worst a mess filled with the continual conflict and chaos that the mind then insists on trying to figure out and fix. First it starts the fires then tries to justify its existence by creating a myriad of ways and means to put them out while claiming they will eventually lead to peace. Most people actually believe this.
The solution is to allow ‘Life to have its way’ and watch how everything seamlessly falls into place. However, you must first become sufficiently frustrated with the mind’s subterfuge to finally say YES to this deep surrender … this is the great blessing of suffering.
