Keeping Our Mind Open to Holy Spirit’s Lead

²Communication is not limited to the small range of channels the world recognizes. ³If it were, there would be little point in trying to teach salvation. ⁴It would be impossible to do so. ⁵The limits the world places on communication are the chief barriers to direct experience of the Holy Spirit, Whose Presence is always there and Whose Voice is available but for the hearing. ⁶These limits are placed out of fear, for without them the walls that surround all the separate places of the world would fall at the holy sound of His Voice. ⁷Who transcends these limits in any way is merely becoming more natural. ⁸He is doing nothing special, and there is no magic in his accomplishments.

The seemingly new abilities that may be gathered on the way can be very helpful. ²Given to the Holy Spirit, and used under His direction, they are valuable teaching aids.

⁹The Holy Spirit needs these gifts, and those who offer them to Him and Him alone go with Christ’s gratitude upon their hearts, and His holy sight not far behind. (A Course in Miracles, M-25.2:2–3:2;6:9)

The key to release from limitations of the world is willingness to accept the Holy Spirit’s guidance in all things and always. This willingness is the choice to be happy. The Holy Spirit’s function is to teach us how to undo the lessons we have learned that deny truth.

When we are willing, there are many avenues through which the Holy Spirit can communicate with us. The most direct is when we are able to accept His Thoughts in our mind. These thoughts may seem to occur as a voice, an image, a feeling, or a sense of knowing what is truly helpful. Other avenues may come through a conversation with another person, a chance meeting or seeming event that brings us insight. We may have a thought to obtain a book or view a movie. These avenues provide the Holy Spirit an opportunity to get our attention and inspire us when we are open to His lead.

We can strengthen our willingness each day with our dedication to pay attention to His lead. During the day it is helpful to frequently pause in the midst of our doing, relax and ask how He would view our present circumstance; what would we have us say or do? He will always guide us with Love to greater peace and happiness.
