I choose the second place to gain the first.
What seems to be the second place is first, for all things we perceive are upside down until we listen to the Voice for God. It seems that we sill gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate, and that our independence from the rest of God’s creation is the way in which salvation is obtained. Yet all we find is sickness, suffering and loss and death. This is not what our Father will for us, nor is there any second to His Will. To join with His is but to find our own. And since our will is His, it is to Him, it is to Him that we must go to recognise our will.
There is no will but Yours. And I am glad that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would have me be. It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace. And happily I share that Will which You my Father, gave as part of me.
Awake at 4 a.m. to write the book, writing meeting at 9.30 a.m. spiritual fair at 12.30 p.m. home from the drizzle and cold 2.30 p.m. A most amazing set of readings with words like ‘your words are gold, they’re very valuable… you are very powerful… you need to stop focusing on time on more on the process… you need to let your inner child play more and open up your heart more… explore the meaning of Venus and your connections to Egypt.
I’d planned to do some more writing today but decided to talk to a friend and watch a few more comedy films instead.
