Cracking The Oyster
Happy Saturday! Welcome to Day 15!
This morning was a battle of the will, which as it turns out, was both completely apropos and on topic!
This article is much shorter than it could have been; there was Sus, sitting at the table, battling her own will, trying to not take this article off into the stratosphere. It doesn’t happen often, but when Divine Love and Will start “talking”, I think it becomes difficult to know when to shut the spigot off in favor of staying on “a” topic. She did manage though…and I think you’re going to notice (at least if you’re a regular reader) there seems to be a bit of an abrupt ending to today’s article (lol). That’s not to say the article isn’t “complete”, it is; there’s just a sudden seeming shortness to it today.
It’s not you, dear reader. It’s not you, not today…lol!
So, grab yourself a temperature appropriate beverage, get to your favorite cushy reading spot, and as always…
There is only one Will. That Will is Love. That Will is your Love, my Love, our Love, together. Only when you will in Love is the outcome assured in Love. Only when you will in Love do you know the results are truly beneficial to all, including yourself. Only when you will with Love are you Free and can affirm with certainty “All is as it should be”.
It almost seems like this Guiding Thought is saying that the reason to Will in Love is to see results that are beneficial to all, or to experience results that “are as it should be”. And, in a way, that is right. Willing in Love does produce results that are beneficial to all and there is confidence when Willing in Love that the results are as it should be.
But getting those results is not the reason to Will in Love. The results of benefit and assurance are simply the side-effects of Willing in Love. The reason to Will in Love is that there is only one Will and that Will is Love. When you Will in Love, you are willing your own will, and willing the only thing that is real. While at the same time, you are willing my will, and everyone’s will–the One Will. That is why the results are beneficial to all–because Love is all our wills; It is all we want.
It’s kind of like what A Course in Miracles teaches: “That which is real cannot be threatened, that which is unreal does not exist.” Only Love exists. We can only will something that exists: Love. Yet, we can believe we are willing something other than Love.
Trying to will anything other than Love, or believing that we are, keeps us in the illusion that it is possible to will something other than Love. We experience the results of trying to will something other than Love–we experience harm, suffering, confusion, fear, frustration, and call them “real”, but they disappear as soon as we will in Love.
Love’s Will is the only thing that is real; it’s the only thing that exists.
If you don’t “buy” this, but you want results that feel good to you, that produce amicable relationships, that maintain peace and harmony in your life, or that just keep you feeling good, by all means…do it for the side effects.
