“Do not strive to heal this world. Do not do anything to make a show of how much you love another. Give up the concept of being a busy bee. Simple be the presence of Love. . . .” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 7, Page 86)
What busy bees we are! We think that if we don’t walk in full steam ahead, we will miss something. We think that others will get ahead of us. This is competitiveness, and competitiveness is never as good as cooperation. We need to rest in God’s love, in the presence of Love, ceasing to strive—for what, we don’t know.
When we turn to God, He will direct our steps through the Holy Spirit. We will know what next right thing to do. The pressure will be off. The alchemy has happened; the iron has turned to gold. We see the true gold shining in the Light, not fool’s gold now. We know whereof we speak; we speak with Love.
If we continue in relentless struggle, we will miss the mark. God does not make extravagant demands on us. He, through the Holy Spirit, shows us one small step at a time.
It is enough.
