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.
Let your sleeping mind be reminded of the very important awareness that you are complete and healed and whole, and let nothing convince you otherwise.

Only false interpretation is upsetting, and you have the power to accept the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world instead.
