I may not ever understand why things are the way they are, or why some people do the things they do. I may not ever understand how all of this came to be, or what any of this has to do with me. I may not ever understand where this is all leading, but somehow I sense a deep perfection woven throughout each step.
I may not ever understand how the deep heartaches of my life transformed into an ocean of wisdom the moment I stopped resisting them, and I may not ever understand how to best express the depth of my gratitude for this opportunity to serve and share. I may not ever understand how I will do all that needs done in a day, but somehow I have learned to humbly embrace the challenges that invite me to dance.
What I have come to understand is that all truth is found in paradox, that there is nothing I need that I don’t have, and that I am always exactly where I need to be. That understanding enables me to respond with an open curiosity to situations that might have otherwise triggered unnecessary fear.
Most of all, what I have come to understand is that understanding is largely overrated, and when I let go of the need to understand, I am able to most fully discover the true nature of this experience of life.
