Let Thy Will Be Done

Most of us come into this world with the seed in us- “Its not okay.” All our lives we try to correct events, people and situations but how much can you correct? It is like trying to rearrange the clouds in the sky. This seed does not allow you to be happy, to smile from your heart, to be loving and loveable.

It is there all the time like a thorn- irritating, irritating….! This seed –“ its not okay.”- brings you back into this world again and again.
So how do you burn this seed? Simply recognize that it is there. This can happen in deep introspection and meditation.
Sometimes you also feel that your body, mind, intellect, memory and ego are not okay. You justify them of find faults with them, but these are also part of the world He created. Acknowledge what you see as an imperfection and offer it to the Divine.
Have faith in the Infinite organizing power of The Supreme Intelligence and have the sincere feeling, “ Let Thy Will be done.” Then the seed- “Its not okay.”- gets burned.
“Thy Will be done” is a state of total contentment, a state of complete, unconditional love. We need not even make it a statement about the future. “y Will is happening now.”

So everything that is happening is God’s will?
Yes, it is including the thought-“This shouldn’t be happening.”
-
His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shanker.

So often when I get worked up with my daily routine or am just plain stressed I try and pick out faults with the whole world! I foolishly try and challenge His perfect Divine Order wherein I get nothing but loads of regret and resentments as part of this unbalanced act and reading this piece of His Holiness gives my whirling mind a sense of calm and the right perspective.
Finally.. I realise ..It is not the outer world which is at chaos but it is my inner world which is at discord trying to tell me so many things. And then its time to seek within and surrender all at His feet :)

Sweet Sister Krishna .. You are so right .. its not always easy to accept complete surrender .. sometimes you find it easy to forget the right path..you stumble ..you find it difficult o follow what is right ..that is why Rumi said ..
"If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished? "...

your article is a beautiful reminder..thanks for sharing..

What love and beauty in these words "Thy will be done." Thank you so much dearest Sister :)

Surrender to the Divine will is the true meaning of Islam, of the Sufi path and heart of all religions. May the words be written on our hearts, and the peace of God flow from us like a light in the darkness.

My love to you and your beloveds :)

Ya Haqq!

Beloved brother Irving,
So nice to hear from you:)I completely agree with you, Islam means-Complete surrender to His Will and in that regards we all are Muslims :)
I so humbly bow down to Sufism and to all the religions too which preach that He is the writer of our destinies and we all are His creations..SO as Christianity so beautifully preaches..MY Father in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name and Let Thy will be Done:))
Love you brother:)My prayers for you and your family too:)



My dearest Dipti,
Thank you so much for your thoughts...I so dearly love the Rumi's Quote you have quoted, let us all not be irritated by every rub of His..we are yet to be scrubbed and polished :))
My love and hugs for you!
God bless you sis:)
