There's a beautiful recognition waiting for all of us when we let go enough. I mean when we really let go. The letting go that happens when we run completely out of options. When we have used up all of our ideas about how things will work, or should work. When we recognize we know absolutely nothing. When we're left standing on shaky ground, with nothing to rely on whatsoever. No-one to turn to. Except our Self.
It is this kind of surrender that is the name of the game. Beautiful surrender. For me, it is everything. Letting go of everything I know, everything I imagine, hope for, or expect. This is what has given me an eye-opening vision of possibility. Because I have recognized a preciousness deep within this Life called Joi. Something priceless that is inherent within this Life. And this is not a cliché...this is a direct experience. Something that leaves me in tears of awesome gratitude and wonder.
In my attempt to describe this preciousness, I might begin by inviting you into sensing into the value of everything you hold dear within yourself. The value of your spiritual journey, your devotion. Your love. I might invite you into recognizing what has been offered in the name of that love, for Truth. For God. And in this sensing, you may begin to feel what it is that Truth might value within you (if Truth were to value something). And perhaps what you feel, is that Truth values what lies deep within your own being. Your Self. Our Self.
For what lies deep within us is for us to recognize. Not as just an experience, or a perception. But it is for us to feel how infinitely precious our fundamental nature is. For within us is a light, a precious sanctum. And Life wants that light to be recognized as pure preciousness. By us. We each need to recognize it for ourselves. Because until we do, awakening can be just a shift of perception, or another experience. It can change things, sure. But it won't be able to be all that it can be. When we first recognize preciousness, we will want to nurture it, cherish it. And then we will want to completely surrender to it.
It is when we are completely surrendered to this precious nature, that Life can live in a completely liberated way. It can begin to move completely unencumbered by anyone, or anything. It can serve the whole. It can connect with the collective field, to transform what needs to be transformed. Heal what needs to be healed. Not for us. For everyone, us included. Because it will be that which is precious that will be the transforming factor. The fundamental element that is pure potential.
