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 illusion that you have any control over your actions lies at the core of your belief and desire for autonomy/separation from God. Feelings like “I have control issues” or “you have control issues” are really expressions of the one mistaken belief in separation, the illusion of control. Relief from suffering comes from an acceptance that the illusion of voluntary control was not created by God and is therefore impossible.
Spirit shows us that He is everywhere. He will show you every step you will need to take along the way on this path to Awakening. Collaboration is the way of living in the miracles. You can’t fit A Course in Miracles into your life because that would be asking for far too little. The Spirit’s plan for you is realizing your magnitude. Express your gratitude, desire, and readiness to be used by the Spirit!
Jobs and relationships are symbols Spirit can use for healing. When you give your life to Spirit, all aspects of your life are devoted to the Purpose of Awakening and every relationship is seen as a total commitment. Your light wants to shine through, and all symbols of this world are tools to be used for this Purpose!
The Holy Spirit guides you through roles the ego made to unwind you from them. When you are playing a role (mother, teacher, boyfriend, etc.), you want control as a “doer.” As you follow Spirit’s guidance, you allow the grip of control to loosen, and move from doing into being. You are not here to take on a spiritual role. Instead, all roles are concepts in the mind to be undone with the Spirit.
