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.
How can I know that I am sustained by God? It helps, when venturing into something that seems unknown, to hear from those who have taken the leap before you. David Hoffmeister shares that the journey into divine providence is one of trust, which means letting go of all “plan Bs,” truly giving yourself and your life over to the the Spirit’s Plan, and allowing yourself to be sustained by Love; sustained by God!
