“We will begin by working on a state of neutrality in which the war is no longer fought, the daily battles cease. Who wins and who loses is not of concern to us here. Peace has not yet come. But the white flag of surrender has been waved and dropped upon a hallowed ground where neutrality will for a short time reign before peace breaks out with glad rejoicing.” (ACOL, C:2.22)
When we seek to change from the state of insanity to something sane, we may need to take it step-by-step. A state of neutrality may need to happen first, before our movement into Christ-consciousness. We, in this state, remain open to all that would be shown to us. We are surrendered to whatever may happen. We will not have to wait long.
Our lives get better at this point of surrender. We are no longer fighting daily battles, because we are endeavoring to live the life that God would have us live. We have fought such battles in fighting life and the best that we have in us. Our ego has undermined our good intentions, and, of course, we know that good intentions are never enough. Our ego would undermine anything that we sought to do better, because surrender means that the ego dies. The ego knows this.
We are gradually walking into the sunlight. We are not fighting useless and senseless battles any longer. We are resting a bit in neutrality, waiting for peace to arrive. And arrive it will, and soon. We need this peace.
Be assured that our time of trials is almost over. When we surrender to God, following guidance of the Christ Self, we know a peace that will never leave us. We are experiencing real love for God, and He knows that all we need to Awakening is to experience this love consistently. He will not tarry long before He looks in on us—and then the blessing of Awakening will rest upon us.
Pray that none of us will have long to wait.
