I’m no rocket scientist, but it seems to me that getting the lift-off seems to be the most arduous part. Just getting the darn thing off the ground is an amazing achievement. Our willingness is our lift off. If we’re sending a rocket to the moon, once we get the rocket headed away from the earth it’s all about two main things: constant course correction, having the necessary fuel supply.
It seems similar for our spiritual journey. Lift-off is when we finally are willing to release the attachment, the tether to the ego identification, the small, selfish self.
Lift-off is when we DECIDE to remember our true nature and identify with Spirit once again.
It’s when we decide that Love REALLY is the most important thing in our life. It can seem like a Herculean effort to get to that DECISION, and yet our willingness is the only requirement.
Once I made that DECISION to be my true self no matter what it took, then I had to be vigilant for the myriad ways I could be distracted and deterred. Constantly cultivating willingness was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. The battle was constant. And yet, because I gave the hard parts to Spirit, I’ve been able to succeed.
My determination to choose Love brought me into a clearly identifiable purification journey. It’s the process of elimination that reveals our inner illumination. I was clearing away everything that was obscuring the light of Spirit in my mind.
In that lift-off period it’s so easy to quit. It’s so tempting to give ourselves permission to say “I can’t do it. I tried SO HARD, but I cannot do it.” I did that thousands of times.
Yet, we CAN do it when we are willing to let Spirit do it. Love is what we ARE. Sooner or later we all decide to remember who we really are and value the truth more than the story we’ve made up about ourselves.
Choosing Love moment by moment is a purification process. Love loosens and softens our ego identification, and grows our willingness.
The journey can be deeply challenging. It’s worth whatever it takes to be willing to choose Love. We have everything we need-pre installed. Love is our rocket fuel. Love is our lift-off.
You decide, are you willing to Love or not?
I AM willing to prove God as my very life! I AM willing to choose Love today!
