Mastery or mystery?
Posted by Simon Parke, 07 November 2022, 9.30am
Today, we let go of mastery and rest in mystery.
We’ll not be misled by the word ‘rest’ however; it doesn’t mean we won’t be active.
We may be very active…working in a shop, looking after a child, running a company, nursing patients, building homes, lobbying about climate change.
But the difference will be this: we won’t experience the stress of having to control everything and everyone.
When we let go of mastery and rest in mystery, we become more open as people, more adaptable, more human, less monster, less blocked; like a clear channel for water to pass through in a parched land.
Our meditation today is away from a need for mastery and towards a trust in mystery.
We don’t need to be in control…
... good has other springs.
