“I’m trying to remember to trust that things will happen at the right time instead of me having to push to make things happen,” a friend said to me. “Things are going to take care of themselves. Let go and let God.”
This is a noble approach to daily life. It echoes aspects of the enlightened experience. And yet there is a difference between this approach and the enlightened experience.
The enlightened experience is that you don’t have to try to remember to trust that things will happen at the right time.
There is no need to try or to remember. Trust is an automatic and constant presence. It is the framework within which you always operate.
And in the enlightened experience, there is no issue of things happening at the right time. That is because time has been replaced by timelessness.
Timelessness makes everything right.
In time, there is one time and another time. There can be a right time and a wrong time for things to happen.
In timelessness, there is no other timelessness. Every timelessness is the right one, and everything happens at the right timelessness.
If you were asked to describe those perceptions, you might say, “I behold action taking place. Things take care of themselves. I do nothing. I am in God’s hands.”
And God never lets go of you.
