Don’t Know Mind

You are invited to bring a cup of tea (perhaps in a thermos cup that will stay warm) and a candle.

Teachings come from everywhere when you open yourself to them. That’s the trick of it, really. Open yourself to everything, and everything opens itself to you. 

Richard Wagamese

The single hardest lesson I’ve ever had to learn is that the greater, grander plan is not mine to create or know. If I am in ceremony and prayer for the right reasons, I leave all that up to Creator. When I surrender outcome, all things good and pure and peaceful come to me. My job is to choose what appears. Easy to say but hard to do, to get out of the way enough to allow the energy to flow. 

Richard Wagamese

The principle is not about accumulating information (the “what”) but cultivating a mind that is “open, receptive and full of wonder” – a mind that is curious . . .
