The sleeping mind is addicted to time. The ego uses time to keep you stuck, but the Holy Spirit works with this belief to take the mind out of time and into eternity. The joyride starts when you allow the Holy Spirit to use you. Heart-opening experiences come from following the steps that are given. The symbols of this world are neutral. The Holy Spirit uses them to convince you that there is a Presence with you, just loving you; a memory of your Self. The Holy Spirit uses the concept of community for the purpose of practicing forgiveness. We are mesmerized by the ego’s world, and community can be used as a symbol of your willingness to face the intensity of this mesmerism. You need never be discouraged that this unwinding takes time, for “Time is your friend, if you leave it to the Holy Spirit to use,” (T-15.I.15:1) and we hold each other’s hands as we walk through the darkness to the light.
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.
The three most important aspects of holy relationship are: undefined, guided, and collaborative. Until you meet the conditions of those three things, there will be misuse of the body and with that come guilt, fear, doubt, and shame.
This path is always about honoring the Purpose. What is the purpose of this life? Jesus would say it is healing the mind of everything untrue. Through him you develop trust, honesty, holy relationship, and commitment. If there is any sense that there could be another plan than going Home, or a “plan B”, you must let the Holy Spirit strengthen your commitment and expose all of the distrust in your mind. Make God your Plan A, and let go of any backup plans once and for all! The rewards will be beyond your imagination!
