It seems, at least lately, that everything I think about, everything that my mind focuses and obsesses about, leads me back to this issue--trusting the Universe. I think this is what it means to surrender, to be willing to fall backwards off a cliff and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I will be caught. It is a very disconcerting feeling and our minds label it as helpless, powerless. Yet this is the true meaning of the Course in Miracles statement "In my defenselessness my safety lies." In my ability and willingness to release all my mind constructs, to lay my soul bare, comes the space for the Universe/Source/My Greater Self to step in and fill me with the awareness of my true power, my true essence. And from this space, all things are possible. Blessed be.
peace and love inside your heart when everything is calm and rosy is one thing.
Being able to sustain these feelings when the weather is stormy is another.
This is excellent practice for you. Contrast holding your light on in a
brilliantly lit room versus a dark one. In the bright room, you can’t see your
light because it blends so seamlessly with the rest of the light. However, in a
dark room, your light shines out and blazes and its effects are very evident.
So here you are, sitting in a dark room, practicing your light shining
exercise. There is always the option to turn on the light in the room. The
light switch is just under your hand. Turning on the room light allows you to
see the corners, allow the highest information possible for you to perceive. So
tapping into guidance, listening to your greater self, your guides and allies,
is like turning on the room light. By turning on this switch, you light up a
whole room. Yet the room is a part of a bigger structure and there are even
ways to light the other rooms and hallways in this house. But that is another
lesson so for today, just remember you have the ability to expand your
awareness farther than you normally do in your day to day activity. You can see
the whole room. You must merely turn on the ability to do so. Seeing the whole room will give you finer
information with which to base your decisions upon. Trust the Universe. It all
ends up here and this is the greatest lesson for you now.
