I surrender to Spirit what no longer serves my greater purpose.
Socrates once said that the unexamined life is not worth living. Jesus is constantly challenging us to take a good look at ourselves in the context of the Divine potential within us. We must recognize that the basic problem in life is the frustration of our own potentiality. When we are faced with inharmony in relationships, it is not so much a problem between ourselves and another who seems to be fighting us, as it is a break in our own circuit of good from the Father within.
Life is consciousness. The problems we face indicate that our wires are down. We need to repair the break within ourselves. The only existence an error-condition has, as far as we are concerned, is that which we give it in our own thinking. Withdraw the thought about it and it fades into nothingness. What matters to us, in reality, is not people or things or conditions in themselves, but the thoughts and feelings we harbor concerning them. it is not the conduct of others but our reaction to it that makes or mars our life experience.
Proverbs 8:14 I have good advice and sound wisdom; I have insight , I have strength.
