What you don't realize is that your Will is the same as what God's Will
is for you. This is the only way that you can have true joy, not the
false joy that comes from this world.
It appears that we can have
a will that is separate from God's Will as we can take actions or have
thoughts that are incompatible with what He wants for us. But do we even
know what He wants for us? Can we even separate the "I" from the "Him"
when only Unity exists?
We BELIEVE we can have a separate will,
and each of us has a completely different idea as to what that separate
will would be, but belief does not make for reality. How can we have a
separate will when only Unity exists, only God exists?
in a reality that has the appearance of duality, but only Unity exists.
So by operating in this world of duality, maybe we are learning through
contrast, that we are truly One and that His Will is all that exists.
Our "separate or ego self" only exists by the power of the belief we
give it. Certainly, we need some type of ego or personality self to
operate in this world, but it does not need to drive the boat as it does
for a vast majority. It is a very small piece of who you are.
When you come to this realization, you begin to ask what truly makes you
happy. And the answer .... drum roll please .... is so simple and
powerful that it brings you to tears of gratitude. Each of us only wants
to do His Will. Only by being a completely clear vessel through which
He expresses can we fulfill our individual evolution, fulfill our role
in this reality, and be a Co-creator with God, which is what He created
us out of Love to do.
How do we get to this place? We have to let
go of what is false, leaving only what is Real. We have to release all
false beliefs, release everything that is not of God. We have to be
willing to witness anything and everything in ourselves, including our
fears, motives, defenses, guilt, shame, self judgment --- everything.
Look behind every corner and shadow in yourself.
Again, why do we
want to do this? Because it brings us JOY AND THE PEACE OF GOD. This is
very much a process of self interest. I can guarantee you that you are
very tired being something you are not. You play roles here, but you are
not meant to identify AS those roles anymore than an actor on a stage
thinks they are truly that role.
When you move into this expanded
consciousness, you realize that you don't have to figure out what God's
Will is. You just live it. You just are it. You move effortlessly with
wherever the River of Life takes you, enjoying the scenery and paying
attention to what God prompts you to do. What a beautiful way to go
