If all it takes is to say “Thy will be done”, why are we so afraid of it? Do we think that by doing so we will be cast into a wasteland of doing without the things that make us comfortable? The reality is that taking care of, and taking pleasure in, our physical life and our physical bodies is a spiritual goal as much as anything else – it is learning how to live in this world as a spiritual being having a human experience, and how to act out of faith and trust.
When we finally get there, though, are we saying “Thy will be done” out of resignation or surrender. I think there is a difference. We may say yes to whatever is happening, but then we must also say yes to divine order – things will unfold when they are meant to unfold. So, do you resign yourself to what is, and then let go – surrender? Are we patient enough to wait? A topic worth discussing.
