Meditation on Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge It, and It shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

All I can do is let go of everything and everyone. My own human position I have long since outgrown. Its pattern remains but what of it? The human pattern must fall away in the presence of God. But for me to attain God's presence, to attain enlightened consciousness, I must put myself first in a totally vulnerable position (at least to human eyes). I must stop taking thought for my life. I must kill my selfishness thru a continual and unending search within. This is the path which God will fully direct. As soon as I am ready to give up my own concepts and judgements, the Truth will be standing beside me and leading me into all good things. Thus far, I have been willing to only allow God in to my life on a limited and selfish basis. Now is the time to give up my desires and give up my clinging to this human entanglement. Of mine own thoughts and abilities I will never overcome my pain and unfulfilled desires, but thru a consistent and accepting acknowledgement of God within, I am come into the real freedom of love and eternal life.
