Let all things be exactly as they are.
The ego mind has a habit of deciding for us what it would like to have and do with its life. The ego is not really alive, it only thinks it is. The ego is a projection of an image and experience from the mind of God’s Son. That’s you! Because you have temporarily forgotten who you really are, you believe that you are something else. And because you believe that you are something else, you believe you want other experiences that are not of God. You have forgotten that what you are really looking for is the experience that you are God and that you are missing out on nothing.
From the perspective of the Mind of God, which is where you really are right now, everything is okay. In fact, it’s better than okay. Child of God, you have been given everything by your Father in Heaven. You believe you are trapped in a world condemned to struggle and suffer until the day you die. This is simply not true and you have been given the keys to prove this to yourself personally, experientially. Do you not understand or see what a wonderful gift this is? You do not because if you did, you would be here no longer. Continued practice of a little willingness is all I ask of you my brother. Take my hand and I will show you much greater things than what the ego world has taught you. Let them go! They are nothing and I am offering you everything. Remember as I have taught you, Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
