I trust my brothers, who are one with me.
The mind of the ego will always look for attack from others so we stay in defense mode. I found this myself recently with a web design client. When I received the message that there needed to be a phone meeting to discuss an issue, my mind did a Hollywood flashback to all the times someone “needed to meet with me to tell me something” and every time the outcome was negative. I did stress for a little while about it, yet I realized I need not do so. My imagination can run wild and it was starting to do so! Yet, Who can I trust but the Holy Spirit.
So before the meeting, I choose to sit in meditation here in my home office. A mantra came to mind, not necessarily an ACIM lesson, but the principles of ACIM were ingrained in the mantra thought. “Peace be to me. I am open. My heart is open and my mind is open.” I repeated that several times and purposefully sent love to the client. I saw us as one, working towards the same goal.
In the meeting, I reminded myself not to defend or to attack, but to simply listen to what was shared and see the Truth behind all the words to the spark of Love held within. I am here to trust the Truth of my sister in Spirit. I asked questions and received clarifications. Afterwards, I felt relieved. I succeeded. I did not allow the ego to mistrust my brothers. I remembered to step back and allow Holy Spirit to prevail. We are One and we are all here for the same purpose, to remember Who we are.
Blessings my friends,
