Giving Up This World

It is difficult to give up this world if you still think that you are sacrificing something, that you are giving up your happiness, even salvation. It is even more difficult to give up this world if you don't have full faith that what's behind the appearance of this world is joy, peace, and Love.
Giving up this world does not mean that you go live in a cave or withdraw. In fact, it means that you become more active, because this world is badly in need of help, and those who have put God first --- those who have gotten out of the way --- can be huge movers of change as God works through them unimpeded. Be in the world but not of it.
Giving up this world also does not mean that you can't enjoy the things of this world, for everything is God. It is how it is used that determines whether it is "good" or "bad." Do you place the things of the world above Him and make them your god? Or do you use things of the world to further a remembrance in yourself and in others of your divinity?
Your "will" or "Will" determines whether you can rise above the things of the world and place Him first. How much do you Love Him, for only through Love and a strong Will, can we put Him first. Your power comes from your recognition that you are One with Him and that He has given you free Will to align with His Will or go outside that. In reality, only His Will exists, for He is All that exists, but there exists the appearance that we can do other than His Will. By choosing Him and His Will, we bring appearance in line with reality.
