Realizing God's Will Is Oneness


    As I begin this journal and welcome you, dear readers, I remember that I need do nothing.  If I think that I must do something grand, something pleasing to all, something inspiring, then I am thinking of the body as a source of strength.  Thinking this way always gets me into trouble because my body self is nothing.  I cannot rely on it in any way, and yet, of course, I do from time to time, when I forget that body is unimportant and make it very important.

And so, remembering that I need do nothing, I proceed under the guidance of Holy Spirit.  I have discovered this is very important.  Over the upcoming months, as I pour out part of my self in this journal, I will be unfllinchingly honest.  I am split minded.  I do not have all the answers to meaning and purpose for my life or any others.  I am in willingness to listen to Holy Spirit, and more willingness all the time, but I cannot say that I am in constant awareness.  I have learned much about going to God through difficult times and I will share my continuing journey.  As I come more and more to rely on “I need do nothing”(ACIM Text Ch18 Sec. VII), I let my life be open to the experience of Holy Spirit at work.  I do not know what this means all or even most of the time.  Occasionally I have instants of greater awareness, and I take comfort in these.

One thing is certain.  There is meaning and purpose at work in our lives whether we think we are in pain or happiness.  Our only salvation from the rough storms that seemingly come up in our lives is to let go and remember that we need do nothing.  This can be difficult, very difficult, but it can be done.  The ego mind wants to keep us in “doing.”  The Holy Spirit would have us come to that quiet center inside where Inner Guidance can show us the way to peace in the midst of what would seem to be worldly chaos.  As I come to rely on this more and more, I discover more peace in my life.

If you have ever asked yourself where you could turn when your life seems in turmoil. or knowing that you can turn to God for guidance but just couldn’t and feel guilty about it, or wonder just how and where you can find true peace, then this journal is meant for you.  I have felt like this at times in my life, full of confusion and doubt and anxiety, and can still have my moments.  I am still healing and forgiving myself, as is everyone on earth.  But the good news is that there is the promise of love and peace that we are and that we can discover.  I am beginning to discover what that means for me and I hope that by sharing my spiritual journey that it will help you discover what it means for you. 

And so, welcome and love to you, dear readers.  I will be posting entries as I feel inspired to do so, but at least once a week.  I am under the guidance of Spirit in this, and I am content to let this journal be what it will be.  Please feel free to add any comments or questions you have, and I will read and consider them in the Light with you.  In fact, I will hold all of you dear readers in the Light with me, those who are silent and those who respond, with the intent that Holy Spirit be experienced at work our lives.  More than this could not be wished for.
