Stream as God's will

From a certain perspective, the stream of phenomena is God's will.

It is the stream of the world of form - of sensations, sounds, sights, feelings, emotions, thoughts, personality, behaviors, situations, the world, unfolding in space and time. And it is all God's will.

It is a field of God's will. God's will unfolding, clearly, here and now.

Even resistance to this stream is God's will. Trying to hold onto some aspects of the stream, and pushing other aspects away. Even that is God's will, unfolding.

Seeing this brings me right into headlessness, into the seeing, or even a taste of the Ground of seeing and seen, absent of I anywhere.

It is a surrender of self-will, of wanting the stream to be different from what it is. Of thinking that I know better than God. Of wanting God, as it unfolds in and as form right now, to be different. Ultimately, it is the surrender of the idea of I, the story of I, the drama wrapped up in the sense of I. It is a surrender of (the attachment to the idea of) I as a fragment of the whole, a fragment of the seamless field of the seeing and the seen inherently absent of any I anywhere.
