When All You Can Do Is Surrender To The Divine

Every time I pass by a construction site, I see a couple of four-year-old girls and a one year old baby girl playing together. As is a common scene on Indian construction sites, the parents work at the site and are mostly indoors, while their children are most often outdoors by themselves.

These little girls smile and greet me whenever I walk past. I feel really happy when I see their smiling faces, yet a part of me feels anxious.

The hard truth is that it is not always a safe world out there. Even children as young as one and four are not spared at times.

Every time I see these little girls, I say a silent prayer, ” Dear God, please let these little ones be safe. They are so trusting and innocent. I don’t want any predator male to lay his ugly eyes or hands on their tender innocent beings.”

I don’t usually prefer to use strong words like ‘ugly.’ But, sometimes, the human in me feels the pain of the Collective Feminine that has been violated over centuries and wants to have a voice. So, I give in and let it be. After allowing her to express her anger, I switch back to neutral.

Women’s safety in this world has become a concern for me, more so after becoming a mother to a daughter.

And there is a constant tug of war between the Human Me and the Soul Me.

The Human Me is shocked, pained, and disgusted every time I hear of a woman or child that was sexually violated.

And the Soul Me is more neutral, knowing that both light and darkness are part of this world at the moment. And while things are certainly getting better, we still have a long way to go as a species. The Soul Me reminds the Human Me that drowning in pain and worry does nothing constructive to help make the world a better place.

So, then I say, ” Alright. So, show me what I must do so I can be more constructive in bringing about positive change.”

Sure, I can write more on this topic and hope it will help contribute in some way towards greater sensitisation.

But will it reach those who most need to be sensitised – the perpetrators of sexual crimes?

Followed by those who may not engage in crime yet have perverted tendencies that can be damaging in less brutal ways?

And even if it does reach them, will it have any impact at all?

What should I do?

What should I do?

What should I do?

I have often been plagued by this question.

I am at a point where I feel called to do something yet don’t know what exactly I must do.

Hence, I have decided to surrender my struggle to the Divine, trusting that if I am meant to effect positive change in this area, I will be shown the right avenues.

And today, my prayer is just this-

Dear Divine,

Please use me as an instrument of Light and help me serve this cause in whatever way may be best.

Please help me stay neutral so I can channel more energy into positive action rather than let it all dissipate in negativity.

Lead me to the right avenues.

Open some big doors.

You know what my strengths and talents are. Please help me put them to the best use in service to the Divine Feminine.

Please help me channel my energy to bring in higher consciousness, which appears to be the best solution to many problems we face as a society.

I surrender and let go of all the anxiety and struggle.

I trust that when the inner calling is strong enough, I will be shown the way and the Light in perfect timing.

In deep gratitude
