‘God, create a clean heart for me and renew a steadfast spirit within me.’ Psalms 51:10
Sitting behind the wheel puts my thoughts in overdrive. So, when I stopped this morn and began to process, this is the result: you know, the role of the mind is to assure your survival. The mind tries to make sure you make choices that will get you through this moment and the next moment and the next. But, now follow me here . . .I want to suggest that what’s best for you may not be the most truthful mind idea at all. We have this cultural story that says that our basic instinct is the survival instinct. However, I am going to introduce to a fresh thought:
perhaps survival is not the most basic instinct, but perhaps the basic urge of life is to not to survive, but to display Divinity. The soul understands that survival is not an issue, because you have survived and you will survive, and as a child of your Creator, your eternity is sealed.
It’s a done deal.
When you take survival off the table, when your remove that as a concern, then the value system by which you make your decisions changes.
That’s why it takes courage to go where we are going today. We are going into an exploration of living this day as your truest self in the Spirit of the Holy.
Release yourself into the Holy.
Understand, this, DearHeart: survival is not the issue. Living in His Spirit is the plan.
