Thy Will not My Will

Originally uploaded by osbock.
When you allow awakeness in, you will find that it plays games with your life. It doesn’t move according to the agenda of the little me, the one who has all these ideas about this or that happening when you awake. The awakeness could care less about the agendas you have. It’s moving, and it’s not listening to what you want, and you are grateful that it’s not listening. You discover that it has its own movement, which I suppose is what real surrender is- following that movement. This is the real meaning of “Thy will be done.”

Adyashanti, Emptiness Dancing, p13

Thank You! How very strange the timing for your comment. I have been struggling with this "blogging deal" ...wondering whether to continue... and so just the day before I'd had this cary inside, "Is there anybody out there getting something out of this?" ... and there you were. Yeah, what, who's agenda? Thank you! I will continue, sharing the bungling forward.
