If I affirm there’s a problem that needs fixing then I’m firmly anchored in the thought that the Divine has disappeared; God has left the building. The only thing required for a healing is for me to see the situation rightly. As long as I see a problem it will be there for me to see. As long as I affirm that things aren’t right I won’t be able to see rightly.
The Infinite has no problems that elude its problem-solving abilities, because there are no problems in Divine Mind. It is I who sees the problem, affirms the problem, identifies the problem and collects all the evidence to support the existence of the big, bad problem. In each of these stages of problem identification I become increasingly convinced that the problem is real and threatening. It feels more and more like God has left the building and I need to solve this problem that is eating my life!
Every problem is built on the often hidden belief that God has left the building. It can be very tricky to see that the fear that God is gone is the only problem. Since the Divine never goes on a vacation or hides it’s Divinity, the whole problem I’m creating a library of evidence to support is, in truth, completely a fabrication of a fearful mind. It’s all based on the false premise of: “What if I were separate from God?”
Healing happens when I recognize every challenge has come to help me be more loving, more kind, more compassionate, more in line with my Divine nature. End of story.
It’s so simple, and yet fear is pervasive unless I stand anchored in the truth of omnipresent Divinity. This is my job. This is my only job. All else I give to the One who has never left and can never leave. In my surrender I discover that my only prayer request is for the faith to know the Divine in every part of my life and always will be. The Holy Presence cannot leave the building, it IS the building and everything that surrounds it, everything it contains. God cannot leave me, nor can I leave God.
In gratitude I surrender all problems to God. I am free to live in God’s Grace now and forever.
