A COURAGEOUS SURRENDERING OF THE MIND

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Today I pray, “Dear God, Thank You for courage. Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“From the most sacred, ancient text of Yoga: ‘Oh Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, strong, and unyielding. I consider it as difficult to subdue as the wind.'”
—ELIZABETH GILBERT

Oooo. Yes. When we allow for our empathy, heart space, to meet up with our choice, mind space, we receive heart-mind action. This is a subtle action. And the subtlety is beautiful. There is a loving courage in this, which differs from a separation aspect of courage. War happens in a separation aspect of courage. Peace happens in a heart-mind action aspect of courage. There is Divine will, karmic will, and free will. And it is free will that allows for this heart-mind courage.

Free will and unity consciousness are actually the basis for economic strength, which aligns with a failed preconceived understanding that war is good for the economy. This is not existentially true. Even months, years, and decades of economic boost have shown worldwide poverty and terrorism to follow. So where did war really bring us, collectively? You see, for those who at the very least are interested in esoteric information for the sake of economic stability and growth projection, unity consciousness and peace are the free will that we as a humanity may contribute to economic stability. Even in the state of an economic reset, it is unity consciousness that shows us at our most stable and thriving existence. And this is a stability and thriving that lasts in the collateral ripple effect, unlike the collateral debt that was created through war. It is easy to understand it once you allow it.

Remember the heart, not only relying on the mind. The mind is not reliable on its own. It is the heart that has us thrive.
