It’s so tempting to put our trust into our own ability to judge what’s happening in the world as good or bad – but how can we really know unless we can see the cause and effect of EVERYTHING.
It was a breakthrough for me to realize that my inability to see through all directions of time and space meant it was impossible for me to really know what anything is for – and therefore I cannot know that it’s not good.
I cannot judge it good or bad at all, and actually know that I’m correct.
I used to have so many pronouncements about what is good and bad, without actually knowing and I caused myself a great deal of pain that way. That’s why I was so relieved to realize I could change that habit and stop trying to figure out if everything was good or bad and what its purpose was.
Instead, I could simply trust. Yay, God!
Right now, with all that’s happening in the world, it’s more important than ever not to judge.
Let us remember that A Course in Miracles tells us everything is actually neutral.
“To learn this course requires willingness to question every value that you hold. Not one can be kept hidden and obscure but it will jeopardize your learning. No belief is neutral. Every one has the power to dictate each decision you make. For a decision is a conclusion based on everything that you believe.” A Course in Miracles, T-24.in.2.
Our beliefs are the basis of our thoughts which are the basis of our feelings. This is why we work at the level of the mind to relinquish our attachments to the beliefs that are false and that works – it works to release the cause of suffering and to expand our Peace and happiness. It works.
Will you join me and together we’ll surrender the thoughts that upset us so. What a blessing that we can do this. We have what it takes. Holy Spirit is our trainer and we are getting in shape!
