“Therefore, when you awaken in each of your mornings, look around. Who is that person sleeping next to you? They are your perfect companion. They are a messenger from God. For just behind your experiences, there is something deeper taking place. Because your mind is resting right next to the Mind of God, when you first say as a soul, ‘I want to awaken, I want to go home,’ the Father answered your prayer and began to send the thought through your Spirit and through your soul to your conscious mind:
“I know how to direct you home. Give up this career and start that one. Move from this location to that location.
“You began to feel all manner of impulses. You began to read different books. You began to do different things. You met someone and fell in love. All by accident? Hardly! (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Chapter 3, Page 31)
Our way back to God, back home, is calculated with no accidents of salvation. There are no accidents at all! This may be hard to accept, especially if we have had hard times, but the fact is that our souls have planned our contract with this world. Everything has had a reason, part of the plan, though we will never understand it all this side of the veil of death.
When we receive promptings of where to go and what to do, what to say, even what to think, we are receiving promptings of the Holy Spirit or the Christ-Self. As soon as we indicated that we were ready to turn toward home, God answered. And this Answer was beyond anything that we could imagine, in most cases, better than anything we could imagine.
If the day seems grim, just be patient. God does not intend us to suffer. The way back is clearer without pain. We learn better without pain, but through blessings.
This way is without the lamentable happenings that have given us grief. This new way will save us for a happy today and tomorrow, one that we could not imagine in our most wondrous imaginings.
