“I give you this thought, and I would ask that you consider it well. What if the very life you are living, and each and every experience that is coming to you now since the moment you decided ‘I have got to awaken her,’ was being directly sent to you of your Father because your Father knows what is necessary to unravel within your consciousness to allow you to awaken? What if the very things you are resisting are the very stepping stones to your homecoming? What if you achieved a maturity along this pathway in which you were finally willing to let things be just as they are?” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Chapter 1, Page 7)
“Sent” by the Father does mean that the Holy Spirit or the Christ-Self is in control of everything that is being sent to us.
We don’t know what will heal us. But we need to bring up the layers of the subconscious mind that have been lost in egoistic thought for eons. These layers are just that—layers. So the different layers will come up, over time, differently. And the layers of the subconscious are different for everyone, so the schooling by a Higher Power is very precise, unique to each of us.
It is true that we can depart from this schooling. We can go off on tangents, forgetting what we are about, and what we are about is a return to God. We function best, though, when, in the flow, we listen to guidance.
The guidance takes us home in God. Let us listen and discover.
