Is It Time to Let Go of Something … or Someone? How many times in say, oh, I don’t know, the past three years or so have you said, “I can’t take this anymore!” Once? Twice? Monthly? DAILY?!?
We are living in interesting times, no doubt about that. My
late friend, the Rev. Helen Street, used to say that “interesting” was defined
as, “GOD, I hope I live through this!”
You don’t have to do it all. You are not here to save the
world single-handedly. I realize some people (myself included at times) will be
surprised at that statement. If not us, then who? It’s true: We must do what is ours to do. But what is it
that we are to “do?”
This is where the “Jesus, Take the wheel!” comes in, which
is the title of the popular Carrie Underwood song.
There are times that those of us who are spiritual, but not religious, may need
to practice a little of what my friend, Marie, calls, “knee praying.”
This isn’t about getting into position to beg an
anthropomorphic old man in the sky to fix our problems. But, the act of
humbling oneself – physically kneeling or not – is a signal to universal law
that we are ready, willing, and able let divine right action occur in our
The “how” is not our concern. We must define the “what” as
clearly and concisely as possible when we treat, pray, or meditate. Then after
choosing the direction – and only then – can we release our desires or problems
into the universe for action, to take the wheel.
Choose your direction. Have faith that there is a power
greater than you that already knows how to accomplish what you desire. Let
whatever or whomever you recognize as your higher power to literally take the
wheel. You’ll have the ride of your life and arrive at the perfect time, ready
for the blessings and rewards of your destination.
