Release Judgments and Be Free

by Rev. Dan Strodl, Ordained Ministerial Counselor

“Be in my mind, my Father, when I wake, and shine on me throughout the day today. Let every minute be a time in which I dwell with You.” (W-232.1:1-2)

Every day is an adventure for me. I have no idea how this day will unfold, or what waits for me around the corner. But I know that I am never alone. The voice for God is always with me, holding my hand and guiding me.

“Be glad today, in loving thankfulness, your Father has not left you to yourself, nor let you wander in the dark alone.” (W-123.2:2)

I had coffee with a couple of friends, and we were talking about a Netflix film series about Harry and Meghan. I shared how much I enjoyed hearing Harry and Megan’s story, but my friends were so negative about it, saying they were damaging the Royal family.

I tried to explain that it was just the news blowing it out of all proportion, but my friends weren’t going to budge. I wanted to attack their take on the film and convince them I was right, but instead I went to the toilet, quietened my mind, and asked the Holy Spirit, “How would you have me see this?”

What I received was, “It’s all meaningless, let it go.” So I returned to my friends… changed the subject, and peace returned to all of us.

We can always count on the Holy Spirit to guide us to peace and love. All we need do is quiet our mind and ask for guidance, and follow his direction. He will lead us to peace, happiness and love.

“God’s voice speaks to me all through the day.” (W-49)

This thought is so comforting to me. It assures me that no matter how upset, angry or fearful I might feel in any circumstance, the peaceful loving voice for God is always available to me, ready to heal my perception and bring me back to peace. All I need do is quiet my mind and listen.

Later on I was having lunch, and two people were seated at the next table talking about all the strikes… trains… postal workers… nurses… ambulance drivers… and how the country was going to collapse because of all the strikers. I was feeling fearful, and so I closed my eyes, breathed deeply, stilled my mind, and I asked the Holy Spirit to heal my mind.

When I opened my eyes I felt so peaceful… I smiled at my new friends at the table next to me, and silently blessed them for giving me the opportunity to heal my mind.

“Deep within you is everything that is perfect, ready to radiate through you and out into the world. It will cure all sorrow and pain and fear and loss because it will heal the mind that thought these things were real, and suffered out of its allegiance to them.

“You can never be deprived of your perfect holiness because its Source goes with you wherever you go. You can never suffer because the Source of all joy goes with you wherever you go. You can never be alone because the Source of all life goes with you wherever you go. Nothing can destroy your peace of mind because God goes with you wherever you go.” (W-41.3-4)
