Resting in God

At times, within your hearts, there is a longing to follow me. If you would but heed that longing, if you would make that longing primary at all times, your own desire will bring you wholly to where I am. (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 6, Page 71)

We are all—every one of us—residing in the Mind of God. Our longing to follow Jesus to where he is, is a laudable desire, but the way we think of it is a little misdirected. He is in that Mind of God also! Of course, we imagine that he has moved a little bit beyond us, and indeed he has. But our locus of operation, where our lives originate, in the Mind of God, is exactly the same.

So we have not moved an inch when we have come to where Jesus is, and he indicates elsewhere that we will laugh when we realize this. Jesus’ sense of humor is palpable. And he uses it to good effect in The Way of Mastery.

We don’t have to go anywhere to experience God. We are everywhere and in every way surrounded by Him, for He lives through us. We are part of Him. And He experiences right along with us.

Trust in the Mind of God to give us the grace to know that all is well. Jesus tells us not to be afraid about anything at all. If our trust seems weak, then we need to expand our love, and the trust will follow.
