Let Go. Let God

“My mind is a center of Divine Operation. It’s always for expansion and fuller expression. Always greater than anything that’s come before.” Thomas Troward as quoted by Bob Proctor

I let go, I let God. This is what came to me during a short forty-five minute meditation. I am at a crossroads. As Robert Frost wrote: “Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”

I am on an adventure. Yes, it is the adventure of a lifetime, as it appears that all the years I have put into seeking my True self is coming to a head. We’ve put ten years into the Center for Spiritual Living Kaua`i. We came here with one purpose and one purpose only: to introduce into the world to the teaching that had changed our lives for the better.

I let go, I let God. What does that mean. To me, it means completely letting go of everything I thought should be and allowing what needs to be known from deep within me to come forth. Bob Proctor, the motivational coach, spoke these words during an interview: “Fear would never stop me. If it doesn’t scare me, I am probably not going in the right direction.

I’m a bit scared right now, as we move forward with our Center. I believe all most of us want is to feel safe and supplied. It is our nature. That is good, but it can hold us back. Mr. Proctor says we must “break through a terror barrier.” That’s what I am doing right now. As is stated in the quote that begins this blog, “the mind is always for expansion and fuller expression.”

I want to give of myself in the way I know how to give, but there is even more than this. I want to touch my own life and touch other lives for good, but there is even more than this. I feel I am worth this journey of greater expansion and expression. I feel I have something great to offer. Then, if this is so, why do I struggle in any way at all? This is the question I ask myself right now. The answer I receive is to let go and let God. It doesn’t look like what you might have planned.

I’m thinking of the swarm of bees that came to our yard last week. I could have seen that as a curse and I could have been scared. Instead, I saw it as a blessing. As I meditated, I realized they had come to remind me that I am a creator, that I am collaborating with something greater than myself. I am to walk forward with the greatest collaboration there is. This collaboration is the one that takes place within each individual soul and the Divine. The Divine is the Infinite Wisdom, Light and Love that is the deepest and truest part of our nature. I let go, I let God.

I walk in trust and faith right now. I do not wait for outside forces to come and tell me who I am and what I am worth. I let go, I let God. I know nothing and now what can I know? I do not wait for outside forces to tell me it’s okay to move forward. I let go. I let God.

Last night I had a dream. One of my great mentors was preaching to me. He was telling me who I was. I think I dreamt of him telling me because that is where I first received the truth of this teaching. I am God. My finances are secure. My success is nonnegotiable. I had previously spent my life pursuing Truth, and I found out that Truth is right here within me. It is so for all of us.

When Ernest Holmes, Founder of the Science of Mind and Spirit wrote, “we were Religious Science,” I believe he was trying to tell us we were the Science. We were where Principle takes place. We were Love and Law. I let go, I let God.

As I am writing this, I feel calmer. I feel that I am letting go to the something greater that works through me. I breathe into this moment and I ask, “What is mine to do right now?” I will keep asking this question and I will look to whatever comes up to answer that question. I will know. I let go. I let God.

Our talk title this week, is “What is Your Camino?” Of course, we are talking about the journey that is the Camino Del Santiago. At one time, I wanted to travel that Camino. I think I wanted to escape and have time to ponder and contemplate. Then, I realized I am on a Camino and I don’t have to go anywhere to walk it. I am walking it in consciousness every day. I let go. I let God is the great adventure I call me life.

I knew the bees would stay as long as it took for us to hear their message. I believe we are here on earth for as long as we can continue to learn in this body. We are on a Camino every day. It is walking us home to ourselves. There is a light sparkling on and off in the trees across the way from our home. I think it is reflection from the sun, but it could be an orb. It’s what I choose to think it is. I always choose to think that everything is happening for my good. I will continue to do that. I let go. I let God.

Today, I will let go all day. I will listen. I will be brave. I will know that everything is happening for my highest good. I am not hear to change anyone. I am only a messenger and example of what is possible.  I will let go. I will let God. Amen and so it is!

PS: Here is a recent review on Amazon of my book, “What Do I Need to Know?”

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-Written and insightfulReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on May 8, 2023

“What Do I Need to Know” is a comprehensive, wide-ranging, and thought-provoking collection of essays/slash mediations that is meant to be digested over time, in short but far-from-superficial nuggets. The individual essays build on each other but have power embedded within each one. While reading the essays, on more than one occasion, I stopped, realized I’d never examined my thoughts from the angle presented by Andriello within the book, and felt my mind shift. That is what this sort of book is all about. Rita Andriello’s wisdom is a genuine gift.”
