“Whether it is a beautiful building or a beautiful painting, all that you are ever experiencing is something that you have drawn to yourself through the medium of the body. It is an experience, and that is all. You are the unlimited one who is in the driver’s seat.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 13, Page 162)
How many of us can actually feel in the driver’s seat, especially now? Jesus’ words sound foreign to us, but I believe he means what he says. But it is our soul that is making these decisions of what to experience.
The little self, persona, that we are frequently resists what arrives for us to experience. We can be glad that a “smarter” part of ourselves is actually in the driver’s seat. This is the Self, Self with a capital “S.” And we are all One in the Self, a part of God Himself.
It helps to see ourselves, in our greater essence, as “unlimited.” If we chafe at restrictions now, we can realize that our soul has chosen this pathway—not only our soul, but the Self whom we share with all other brothers and sisters. We are in this together.
