07-12-17 Letting Go of the World
The ego would have us believe that in order to be happy, we must satisfy ourselves with the things that the world offers: a good education, a good job, good health, and good friends. It tells us that once we have “enough” of the good things, we will be happy. Yet, it simply keeps us chasing happiness in the future, never finding it where it actually is.
Just as Jesus taught “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven within…”, he is still instructing us today through the modern-day spiritual masterpiece known as A Course in Miracles. Contrary to the ego’s plan for happiness, Jesus teaches us that i
f we devote our life to remembering our true nature, everything will fall into place. We can let go of the world, let go of all worldly concerns, and trust our Intuition (the Holy Spirit) to tell us what to do moment by moment. Such is the way of peace.
