As you see in realtime that everything is unfolding perfectly fine without intentions, you begin to realize that you don’t have to worry about the future – because you now know, you have faith, that everything will be taken care of exactly as it should, when it should, by an intentionless unfolding of the totality.
Faith isn’t something that you can convince yourself to have. It’s something that you have to slowly acquire by seeing in realtime that everything is working out all by itself.
-Göran BacklundThe above is an excerpt from Göran’s latest Blog, “Life: How To Live It” and, imo, gets to the heart of the problem for the “seeker” who understands non-duality backwards and forwards, but is still trying to, at some level, control Life. Since this is not possible (can the wave EVER control the ocean?), we experience suffering. Once we see that that control is an illusion AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN… then, as we let go more and more, we see IN OUR OWN EXPERIENCE how everything always seems to work out. And, I agree with Göran that it does take time. Why? Because it took “time” to become conditioned to believe the idea that you are the doer, so it naturally follows that it would take some “time” to see that you have never been the doer… And yet, doing spontaneously happens! Just keep letting go and notice how Life does all… –Michael Jeffreys
