I read this this morning (by Wilfrid Stinissen):

“Love is to step outside of ourselves, and that is possible only if we believe and trust in God.”

I began to think…. Am I ever really able to step outside of myself or do I hold tight to the illusion that I am in control?  If I really let go and trust, what might happen?  I need to sit with this a while and both rationalize it (mind) and listen to it (heart) because the choice is really simple.  Stay ‘inside myself’ where I think that I can control things, or ‘step outside’ into the darkness, into the unknown…and trust.  ‘Stay inside’ where fear and anxiety are my companions or ‘step outside’ into the arms of Love.  OK, it makes sense….now, to do it……
