Let the Mystery Unfold

by Mona Saint M.D.

The first verse of the Tao Te Ching states “and the mystery itself is the doorway to all understanding.”  Wayne Dyer in his commentary and translation of this verse in the fantastic book  Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life states: “Let the world unfold without always trying to figure it out.”

Life is a mystery unfolding before us and we are exactly where we are meant to be in this moment.  I am learning each time I get into a new ‘ mystery’ which I refer to as any change or occurrence that causes stress or intrigue or that I cannot understand that it is exactly as it should be.   I’ve started to remind myself, ‘ahhhh I’m in another mystery.  I know something good is going to unfold from this.’  If I can remember this–I don’t always–I can enjoy it and be open to it.  I do love in life how most of the mysteries eventually get solved and something interesting and meant for my growth always comes of it.  I just need to remember to take some deep breaths, stay in the present and remain on the path.
