All the emotions are being generated by clinging to a false self, by trying to protect a false identity. The way out is to pay close attention and notice when the contraction would come up. This way you can start seeing things in a helpful perspective. And you will see that every emotion relates to an identity attachment. This is a journey of emptying the mind, for it requires questioning every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden, or it will obscure your learning. Practicing this will lead towards the experience of consistent joy and peace of mind.
Undoing all attachments comes from trust—not trust in persons or things, but trust in the higher Self and intuition. You will reach a state of mind with no ambitions. There is a Presence of Love that transcends differences and comparisons and judgments. Everything blends into one experience, like a happy, delicious milkshake.
When we put the Kingdom of Heaven first, Spirit will arrange everything for us, we do not have to worry about how it will unfold. Be like a feather in the wind, living in the flow of trust, and divine providence will carry you. This is the message of the Holy Spirit; that when you put His purpose first, everything you need in this world will come without effort. But we can’t just wish the ego thought system away. As David Hoffmeister tells us in this talk, we have to purify the mind; we have to let Holy Spirit unwind us out.
The power of forgiveness is alive and ever-present! Those who have gone before us have paved the way. We simply need to keep on moving! Look closely and take responsibility for your state of mind. This is the way out of the personality-self.
As we allow our minds to be trained and we become uncompromising in our desire for truth, we can start to have fun with this world of hypothetical thinking. The Holy Spirit leads us from the heavy burden of identity-confusion into the lightness of being Christ-Identified.
