Spirit's call is to "Let Go" to the Great One, the Higher Voice...
Letting go of all that is not of that Power... It’s hard to find out what Spirit is.
or what Spirit's will for us is while still holding onto what I want to believe.
Acting "as if"-
"Acting as if" there is a Greater Power has helped many confirm the presence of
a Higher Being. Creating, imagining, or making up in one's head what "God" is, or
what He/ She might be saying is far better than trying to go it alone.
If Spirit truly is all powerful, then it can work in any form ...
Spirit wants to help us and will even go along with our agenda
if that is the best way to get us to Good.
Knowing we have the desire and the need to connect with Spirit and heart to heart is built into us.
We can nurture that and help it grow. This need of ours is Spirit's First Law.
Creating a Spirit Life includes:
Developing the quality of willingness means letting go of ego, giving up on trying to run my life solely on my own steam.
Instead, I submit my desires to a "Greater truth" (whatever that is to me),
I ask for guidance and an openness to the promptings of Spirit, and a growing ability to live in truth, virtue and faith.
Putting thought and investigation into finding what is true and will bring me to a higher plane is vital.
Living by something Greater than pure animal instinct opens the spiritual eye.
Spirit speaks to me through earthly sources too. Readings of scripture and Higher-Powered words helps open the inner eye,
and checking in with others in the human world keeps me on a better road than just what's between my ears.
The Greater Good, rather than the want of the moment, is often the better choice.
Learning to let go and let Spirit be the major decider helps me Open to Spirit's Bigger View,
and to make the Wiser choices than I could make alone.
As I come to believe and trust in Something Bigger, I can call on that Power for help in these endeavors.
Seeking spiritual knowledge and sources from outside myself, for me,
is key to surrendering the ego and tapping into Source.
I may just need Good to find Good: An attitude of humbleness helps:
"Of myself I cannot, but by Spirit's strength I can."
Knowing that I may need Spirit's help to understand realities beyond myself
moves me to ask for help from its Great Power. That kind of humble attitude makes me teachable.
