Spirituality is not about high ideals. You want an actual experience of peace and that is extremely practical. The Spirit meets you where you believe you are. Love waits on welcome, not on time. How welcoming are you to Spirit’s guidance? When you start to clear your mind of all your fears, doubts, and dualistic thinking, and you need an answer, it will come through you like a download from the Spirit. But you have to follow the guidance. You have to allow yourself to be unwound by the Spirit out of the matrix. Can you see how practical that is? You are being taught to start opening to the Spirit’s guidance to unwind your mind back to Oneness.

Have you ever caught yourself wondering, “why don’t I feel happy right now?” While you believe in duality, in the maze of space-time, you need help to get back to your natural state of true happiness. That’s where guidance comes in! It’s very practical. Henry David Thoreau once said, “most men live lives of quiet desperation.” Let’s take a look at those moments of quiet desperation! Do you ever feel bored or feel a dullness in your life? If you are not living a life right now that is consistently and supremely happy, you have some compromise going on in your mind. The sneakiest thing about compromise is that you don’t know you’re compromising!

“A Course in Miracles” is taking us to God dependency. Person-based dependency is stressful and the scarcity principal is played out whether we are protecting wealth or trying to get it. Divine providence can only give. When we go deeper into divine providence, we transcend reciprocity entirely. There will only be peace of mind when we are dependent on God.
At times it feels as though we have an addiction to our repeating life patterns. It can seem like a bad habit—we find ourselves speaking and thinking in a certain pattern over and over. We have an addiction to a repeating story. Healing has to go beyond the stories that you make up about yourself and others. In reading “A Course in Miracles,” one realizes that intimacy goes much deeper than the stories. Stories are often used to get attention, for control, pride, or to feel better than others. You can let go of the old purpose for telling the story and find a new purpose for using words.
