We always have all of our faith in any
moment. The question is, where is it invested? When you have
fears and resistance to life, when you have strategies and masks
to keep yourself safe in a world that you believe to be unsafe--
that is where your faith is invested. You have faith in those
stories, faith in those lies. Your faith is invested in those
things that keep you safe in what you believe to be an unsafe
To be free is to release the investment
of your faith in those things of Hell, and instead to invest
your faith in Life. Life is what you are, anyway. Life is digesting
your food right now. Life is growing hair and making ear wax
and exchanging nutrients in your cells and creating hormones
and doing all of the tasks that keep "you" alive. If "you" tried
to do it all without Life, you would be dead of overwhelm in
30 seconds. Life is what you are. And Life is unfolding every
moment, in this present moment.
There is nothing you have to do or become
to surrender to Life and invest your faith there. There is only
something to stop doing, and that is believing that your are
NOT Life and that Life is not doing Life as 'you.'
Perhaps it is time to invest your faith
in Life itself. To trust that the Life that moves in you and
animates you, as you, knows more than the "you" that is used
to knowing everything. LIFE knows why you are here and where
you are going. To leap into Life is to surrender your fear and
everything else that you know or believe. It is to trust that
which has actually been guiding you all along, in spite
of your resistance and distractions. To surrender to Life is
withdraw your faith from the lies and fears of the past, and
to put it into a trust of Life. It means surrendering to Love.
To the glorious Oneness of all Creation.
There are many fears and beliefs that
will hold you back and sabotage this surrender. Perhaps there
is one reality that will help you let go: Perhaps you know that
it has not actually worked very well to try to control your
life. Perhaps you have realized that in spite of your best efforts,
your Life just keeps unveiling itself according to some plan
or accident that you do not understand and cannot control.
Life is only alive in this present Now.
Fear and control and resistance live in the past and the future.
God is only alive in this moment, all other moments are dead.
To be in this moment, present with Life, with God, is to surrender
and BE. Again, you must invest your faith in Life, in order
to have this present.
