Does force do us any good?

I was reading a news article in which one leader of a country was saying the only way to accomplish its goals was required through force.

I questioned this conclusion. Really…is the only way to accomplish something through force? Has any good thing every been accomplished by human force? We can’t force the sun to rise or set; we can’t force a flower to open; we can’t force a baby to go to sleep.

In fact, I would say that we can’t really “force” any thing good to happen. There is the old Christian sentiment: Let go and let God.

God is the force, will and love the causes things to happen. This force of good is always active, always present and is always working for the benefit of everyone. We can’t make it happen; it is already happening; we are simply a witness to this fact (witnessing isn’t a passive thing; it is actively seeing the facts of spiritual reality — the truth about God and man’s relationship).

Here’s an example: I was trying to put our baby down, but he just wasn’t going to sleep. I was really trying to make it happen (this rocking will be soothing!). He immediately did fall asleep, though, when I changed my thinking — when I witnessed the harmony of that moment. What could I be doing during that time? Praying! I had some praying to do, so I decided that was as good of a time as any, I’d better get started. He fell asleep right away. The truth about that moment was that I have a purpose and so does he. Our purpose’s can not interfere or take away from one another. And they didn’t!

I couldn’t force him to go to sleep, but I could be a witness to the spiritual facts of that moment: all is harmonious, all is peaceful, complete, and we are not deprived of anything (since divine Love supplies all).

Perhaps these leaders may have had to put a baby down to sleep at one time. Maybe they can then recognize that the same tenderness, patience and gentleness is required in their relations to others.

Letting go…Forgiving yourself and others

 

Let go of any past, any shame, or regret, thinking you were right, thinking you were wrong, or mistake.  Just let go.  Walk in the path of harmony, peace, joy, forgiveness and freedom.  It is within all of us – each of us.  There is only one Ego – one Being, divine, and all is One with it – in connection with it.  “There is but one real attraction, that of Spirit.  The pointing of the needle to the pole symbolizes this all-embracing power or attraction of God, divine Mind.” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 102)

 

Let’s go a little further with understanding what Ego is:

“I, or Ego. – Divine Principle; Spirit; Soul; incorporeal, unerring, immortal, and eternal Mind. There is but one I, or Us, but one divine Principle, or Mind, governing all existence; man and woman unchanged forever in their individual characters, even as numbers which never blend with each other, though they are governed by one Principle. All the objects of God’s creation reflect one Mind, and whatever reflects not this one Mind, is false and erroneous…” (Ibid, P. 588)

 

Let go of any false sense of “you”, which is separate from the one Being, or Consciousness.  There are no limitations, no inequality, no lack, and no loss of balance.  There is only the One Ego, divine Being and It’s creation, or manifestation.

 

When we are governed by the One Ego or divine Being, we are in harmony with those around us.  We are in harmony with boundless bliss and joy.  We are in harmony with having each of our needs met and supplied, moment-by-moment.

 

We feel centered and balanced and just, untouched or affected.  Any seeming “attack” just rolls off like water on a duck’s back.

 

This is being in accord with the First Commandment: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3)  Don’t worship or praise or give your attention to anything else but “me” – the God of harmony, peace, forgiveness, and charity. Definitely pray about and heal each situation, each circumstance in your own thought.  Thought is where real change happens and it blesses you as well as others.  You will feel the effect; you will feel the needed change.

 

This is actually the source of our health – where our health comes from – God.  This One Mind, or Spirit governs us righteously.  And following this reveals who we are as His/Her children and with divine rights: intelligence, brilliance, happiness, health and freedom.

 

So let’s “let go” of anything that hinders us from feeling and cherishing our oneness with Spirit.  Spirit, Love has already blessed us, and we can rejoice in this blessing. Let go of anything that is separating you from feeling your oneness now.
