“When you come to the edge of all of the light you’ve known, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown; faith is knowing one of two things will happen. You’ll have something solid to stand on, or you’ll be taught how to fly.”

No matter how much we may dislike Covid coming into our world, the one thing it has taught us all is to live in uncertainty.
Buddha shares with us that enlightenment only happens when there is no desire to understand the perspective of the mind.
However, our mind is constantly looking for certainty, the familiar, and the comfort of the known. It is like a detective, always looking for evidence to confirm its beliefs and perspectives. If we feel like we are not enough or we do not have the strength to go on, the mind will search to prove we are right.
So how do we step out into the unknown safely? We don’t.
Our mind’s only task is to keep us feeling safe.
Our soul’s purpose is to live fully in every moment, not knowing what the next moment will bring.
Mantra: I trust in life. I am safe to step into the unknown.
