The Beauty of Mystery

When it comes to books, tv shows and movies, I love a good mystery. When it comes to navigating this concept in my everyday life….I find it a bit more challenging. I would love to say that I am the free spirited, adventurous, take what ever comes type….but I would be lying…and that is generally frowned upon. I am more the want to know what is going to happen, have all the answers, contingency plan type. I am learning to see this as both a strength and an opportunity for growth. Where am I going with this you make ask? As I embark on a new journey in my life, I have been reminded of the beauty of mystery. There are these moments in time where this mystery, this place of possibility, this place of the experience of the ineffable sits down beside me like a trusted friend. In these moments I am asked to release my attachment to how I think things should be and embrace the mystery. To make friends with the unknown, that which cannot be planned or even described. These moments are a gateway, an opportunity to step fully into life…to be so in love with the mystery that answers are no longer needed. The more I allow these moments, the more I am becoming aware of the sheer expansiveness that is created in my life when I can make friends with the mystery. It is a constant companion, that source of limitless possibilities that calls us to let go and “cannonball” into life.
