"Humble yourself, therefore, under God's mighty hand that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all of your anxiety on Him because He cares for you."
Whatever the anxiety, the worry, the fear, the "problem," that appears in life, you do not have to fight it alone. In fact do not fight it at all. Let it go - turn it over to the Divine Presence within and allow peace to enter your being and replace the anxiety, worry, fear or the "problem."
In Taoism the method for letting go of suffering is non-resistance. Taoists believe in embracing whatever comes, accepting whatever appears in life.
Make no judgment of things that appear in life. They may appear terrible one day and turn out to be a blessing the next. Never say - "I have a problem." Say instead - "Here is an event in my life; I have no way of judging it. I turn all in my life over to the Divine Presence within and am at peace in this moment."
I often hear it said that what you resist, persists. For me this is a great truth. It is in non-resistance that we are "lifted up in due time." The path to ending suffering, the path to healing, the path to a worry free life is to stop resisting your "problem" and accept what is. This is living in faith. Faith that He cares for you. This is, as is also often said - letting go and letting God.
Viewing the events of our lives dispassionately, accepting what is without giving it a label or judging it, is expressed in a poem by Rumi:
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
I see this as a spiritual two step process. First acceptance (non-resistance) and second letting go (and letting God). This two step process is saying - I have no worries. My worries are over. I live in faith and am open to whatever comes - and know that because He cares for me, what comes is always my highest good - "in due time."
