Trust Your Feelings

“You will never fully understand what unity means, but you will come to feel what unity means, and this I promise you. This is what we work toward in this Course, for once you have experienced the feeling of unity, you will need no understanding of it.” (ACOL, C:13.1)

This very reassuring passage encourages us to trust our feelings. Our feelings don’t lead us wrong, unless they are quite negative feelings, and then we are dipping into something egoic, very different from unity. We are seeking to unify with the All, the Everything—God, our brothers and sisters, the world and everything in it. This unity indeed knows no bounds.

If we trust the feeling of unity, we will be home free. Unity is not something meant for the mind to “understand,” something that Jesus says here would be impossible.

But we can feel the difference between the ego and the unity that the heart leads us to. And this difference is phenomenal.

Let your heart lead today. Let your heart lead everyday. The way will clear when we are open to the feelings of unity that the hearts leads us to find.

One thought on “Trust Your Feelings

  1. I find not needing to understand or figure everything out quite restful. I think I am becoming more like my two dogs. They don’t plan or set goals and agendas and I find that I don’t either anymore. They seem to just listen to their hearts without figuring it out. Pretty cool.
