My dear friends...
Election Day in the United States is coming up in less than 80 days, where a great many of the readers of this Bulletin reside. As a non-profit organization our Foundation cannot (and would not choose to if it could) endorse any political candidate running for any office --- but we can urge you, whomever you support, not to miss the chance to cast your vote.
Voting in a free election is one of the great privileges of a democracy, and we urge you to make your voice heard! Remember what Conversations with God says: “Politics is your spirituality, demonstrated.”
Which leads us right into where we left off last week in this Bulletin, when we ended the column with these words...
Never underestimate the power of your word and the power of your will. Will-power can produce remarkable results.
Willing something to happen is what turns yearning into action.
Picking up where we left off...
When you say, “I am willing” for such and such to happen, you are saying “I am asking” that it happen. Actually, you are saying even more, because the act of willing a thing to happen is not an act of requesting, it is an act of demanding. It is a “calling forth.” As in, “My will be done.”
When I am willing for Divinity to be made manifest in my reality, the Second Step has been taken and I move closer to The Holy Experience. Sometimes I place myself within such an experience by that means alone.
Yet what does it take to be willing to have such an experience? It takes an agreement within the Self to let go of anything and everything that is unlike The Holy Experience.
But wait. This may not be as easy as it sounds. And least, for me it was not. First of all, I did not know what The Holy Experience was like, and so, I could not know what was unlike it. And least, not fully.
I could make a guess about some fairly obvious things—but even those guesses were sometimes inaccurate. For instance, is it part of The Holy Experience to be angry? No, I said to myself. People who are having The Holy Experience are never angry. They never fall prey to their negative emotions.
Then I met a Master who laughed at that suggestion. “Do you really think that a person living within the Holy Experience never knows anger?” the Master asked with a chuckle. “Is that what you call ‘mastery’?”
“Uh, yes, I thought so....” I stammered.
The Master smiled. “A Master is not one who never experiences a negative emotion, a Master is one who never experiences any emotion as ‘negative.’ The Master is one who masters all emotions, and uses them on purpose, with intention, for a specific reason, to produce a particular result. The Master is one who is always creating, and knows that creation is always occurring, and who uses every emotion to create, rather than to react.
The Master knows that all emotion is chosen. And how can anything that is chosen be negative? How can you have a negative feeling when you are getting what you want? You can only have a negative feeling if you have forgotten that everything you are receiving is something you have created. Only a person who is not at mastery would think this.”
I realized when I heard the Master speak that I knew very little about The Holy Experience. That is when my real exploration began.
