Reading the Daily Word for yesterday, 26th September, two lines in particular really grabbed my attention.
First: I yield to possibility.
In Unity we talk a lot about letting go and letting God. Indeed it was Unity that introduced me to this practice. Yet so often, our minds do not like anything about this statement. Surely we know what is needed? It is up to us to sort things out ... This was certainly what I was taught as a child. Yet, working within Unity's prayer line, it has become so obvious to me that none of us know what is the very best outcome for ourselves, let alone anyone else!
This idea of yielding to possibilities really opens the door in our minds to the good that is here yet not always seen. What an exciting prospect. There is more good here for all of us than we can possibly know. The first step is to yield to this truth. For God, as universal good, is here for all of us.
The second: We are creating the space for "the dynamic creative energy of Spirit to inspire and surprise us". Perhaps even delight us ...
We do take action of course. After yielding to possibility, and letting the activity of God as good for all of us express through us, anything is possible.
This is the understanding that keeps me positive; for me and everyone on this planet. When we work together for the good of all, great things can happen. What wonder and joy is this.
