     I think the siblings' strong commitment was to their faith, not to the unknown.  Being present to the unknown is being present to not knowing.  The siblings were certain that their prayer would be answered and it would rain -- they were being present to their faith that it would rain.  My commitment to being present to the unknown has grown over the years.  We don't know.  There is no certainty.  An action that emerged from my commitment to being present to the unknown is simply speaking my truth, letting go of trying to make a certain outcome happen, and trusting the process.  What helps me develop that commitment is experiencing the spontaneous, alive, creative good that comes from it.
