Lesson 257 – What is my purpose?

Let me remember what my purpose is.

If I forget my goal I can but be confused, unsure of what I am, and thus conflicted in my actions. No one can serve contradicting goals and serve them well. Nor can he function without deep distress and great depression. Let us therefore be determined to remember what we want today, that we may unify our thoughts and actions meaningfully, and achieve only what God would have us do this day.

Father, forgiveness is Your chosen means for our salvation. Let us not forget today that we can have no will but Yours. And thus our purpose must be Yours as well, if we would reach the peace You will for us.

Today I also read the teacher’s manual (18) which reminds us that when we are true teachers we allow God to speak through us. I did two coaching sessions today, and on both occasions I felt I was able to move myself out of the way and let God speak. Such interesting words came out of me. It’s a process I trust more and more now, because it always delivers exactly what’s needed, and I don’t have regrets or recriminations about what I should or shouldn’t have said.

I shared the Marianne Williamson ‘It is our light, not our darkness that most terrifies us…’ piece with a friend today. I’m always amazed by the reaction when someone gets it for the first time.

Back to the belly dance practice today, in preparation for rehearsal tomorrow. I am so very rusty!
