An exercise in spiritual equilibrium this week, it seems; yet as we ask questions, we receive answers, at one point or another. Trust the Universe!
For quite some time, I have been asking myself
“What does it mean to surrender to Divine Will?”
And how do we know we are indeed surrendering?
There is often celestial magic at play and I/we experienced some of it on Sunday afternoon as we became involved in a small car accident. I was backing out of a parking stall, didn’t see a car coming, and we got hit in our rear. There was little damage and the exchange with the other driver was cordial—a woman, originally from Germany, and her partner.
What surprised me most was the state of “emotional neutrality” that I experienced. No upset, no feeling bad about what just happened and, most importantly, no feeling bad about myself.
Equanimity is another name I use for “emotional neutrality.” Equilibrium is also a meaningful description and the tarot card that came to mind, as I later reflected on the accident, is that of The Star—major arcana number 17.
A beautiful woman fully involved in the “balancing act,” pouring out water from a stream with one hand, and pouring it out onto the land with the other hand.
The motto that I sense about The Star is “everything will be alright.” We can be serene. In the first place, it will be “alright” because our earthly actions are watched and supported by the celestial realms. The Star, an emanation of Divine Will, is watching over us and providing the nutrients we need.
This incident, and my inner response to it, as unexpected as it was, is not a full answer to my query about Divine Will. Only a part of it that constitutes a piece in the puzzle of our ever-evolving life.
The important point is that we keep the “spelunking” going and reflect on what happens to us, both internally and externally.
It leads us, I believe, to the destination we have chosen long ago and that some call Home.
