Do you make a prayer and then take it back? You’d be surprised at how many people do just that. I use the imagery of placing the prayer on my altar. In A Course in Miracles, it refers to your heart as the altar in the temple.
We hold our prayer in our heart. And when we take it off the altar that’s when we decide to work on it ourselves. When we don’t have the faith to leave the prayer on the altar – this is an issue of trust. Without trust and faith we’re working for the ego.
When we’re working for the ego, we don’t really have new experiences. We just keep repeating the same things over and over, attempting to learn and grow, but resisting the actual growth and expansion.
We learn to have trust and deepen our faith when we can leave the prayer on the altar and not try to manage and manipulate things ourselves.
It’s a bit tricky sometimes to recognize when there’s work for us to do and when it’s best for us to simply stand back in trust and faith. We learn to use our intuition to let us know what is ours to do. Being impatient is not helpful. A Course in Miracles tells us that “infinite patience produces immediate results.” Immediate results are Peace of mind. Sweet!
In order to release the problems we must surrender the thinking that created them and that thinking is separation thinking – the belief that we’re separate from each other and from the Infinite Source of All Good. The one problem we have is that we have forgotten our true identity in Spirit is Light. We are the Light of God that never fails! No problem!
