You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.  Thomas Merton

Our mind needs reassurance. It wants to know how it will all work out. What’s going to happen? Mostly it wants to make sure we are safe! This is not a bad thing, but it keeps us fretting and worrying unnecessarily. The fundamental reassurance we have is that Spirit is moving through us as the wisdom and intelligence of the Universe. We have the assurance that the Universal Law uses our intention as the mold for the end result. As we are fixed on the “what” of our goal—not the “how will we get there”—we are present to what there is to do in this moment.

The Universal Law will take every action of ours and mold it into a step in the direction of our end result. Our job is to step boldly onto the path and take each step with the confidence and courage that the knowledge of spiritual truth gives to us. As we follow the path, the Wisdom and Intelligence of Spirit guide us toward the end result. This is the dance of faith. It is the certainty that gives our soul reassurance and quiets the worry of the mind.

Spiritual Contemplation: When have you walked in the present moment with faith and courage, knowing that your way was assured, even though you didn’t know how it would all turn out. Did it turn out okay? How can you apply this in your life today?

Affirmation: I release my need to know how! I stay focused on my goal and trust I am guided in the action of the current moment.
