The Fellowship of Awakening- February 12, 2014
We'll be looking at Chapter 5: Healing and Wholeness at the section called "The Decision of God'. Because it tracks with the lessons we're going to be talking about how we get to experience what we want. How good are you at creating your own happiness? How much of that stuff can you stand? We can tolerate about as much as we can heal. Sometimes we don't want to heal: we find value in suffering. We even make it apart of our identity. So when it comes times to heal we feel like something is being taken from us. Our joy awaits in allowing the Joy of Who We are manifest in our lives as what we want to do. There is a place within each of us that knows what to do. It's the place we share with Wholeness.

Explanation of Images:
The Universe is very interested in you. The you think you are and the You You are. The Universe cares and supports your craving for experiences. You can have what you want, but you do not get to determine how that occurs. How badly do you want what you want? If you really want it, you’ll let Someone Who Knows tell us what to do. We often think we have to plan, manipulate and beg our way into receiving our inheritance. It’s not true. The path to our happiness is through Joy. When we turn the decisions over to the care of Holy Spirit and take action we have the experiences that lead us to our Joy. I am naturally capable of transcendent joy and fulfillment. It’s my destiny.
Say this to yourself as sincerely as you can, remembering that the Holy Spirit will respond fully to your slightest invitation:
I must have decided wrongly, because I am not at peace.
I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise.
I want to decide otherwise, because I want to be at peace.
I do not feel guilty, because the Holy Spirit will undo all the consequences
of my wrong decision if I will let him.
I choose to let him, by allowing him to decide for God for me.
