“I don’t know,” is an admission that can free us. Religious Recovery encourages us to question, to investigate for ourselves, and not be satisfied with another’s beliefs unless they resonate with us. In this quest to find our spiritual path, unknowing is common and healthy. If a bowl is full of rice, we can’t add more unless some is removed. Jesus spoke of not putting new wine into old wine skins.
We surrender our thoughts and our lives to the unknown. We might think each day is the same with little break from the normal routine, but in reality we have no idea what each day will bring. By becoming open to what might be instead of what we think probably will be, we become like expectant children looking for the prize in the Cracker Jack box.
When we become more childlike we understand The Divine only gives good gifts. In fact, what He or She gives is exactly what we need, given in just the right time and in just the right way we need it. The Divine is Love. How could The Divine give anything less than love? We rest assured in our unknowing, because we know The Divine loves us.
