I am not sure we take God’s mystery seriously enough. I know I can over think God and try to fit God into a nice conceptual box so I can understand the mystery. And, in the end, try to control the mystery. Maybe that is the issue. We do not like to be out-of-control. Perhaps when we do not have the mystery of God at our center we are left with the ego’s sheer craze for power and control? Willfulness becomes the rule. I know I see this in my own life when something doesn’t go my way. I try to force things into my expectations and get thoroughly disappointed when my outrageous expectations are not met. Wise are the words of Jesus: “The wind blows where it wills and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” And so it is with the Spirit! With God! Now, I find when I do yield to the Mystery and accept not knowing and niot being in control, life fills with so much freedom and pristine joy.
