“Can you start to see how many feelings and thoughts you have drowned? How little spontaneity has remained after ‘growing up’? How many games have you stopped playing, pretending to look serious and mature? The time has come when that is past! Now we replace seriousness with freedom.” COL bk.2, 9:IV
A Course in Miracles says that seriousness is of the ego. And A Course of Love says that the patterns of the ego will linger even after we have given up egoic living. These patterns may hold us back now. Choose Only Love is saying that it is time to give up seriousness entirely, to move ahead in our lives with the freedom that a child of God deserves.
If we listen to the whispers on our mind and heart, we will know how to find freedom. Nothing will hold us back any longer. Certainly we will not attempt to be “mature” because we think games of life are no longer warranted. Life is meant to be limitless and joyous. This is what our new freedom will mean to us.
Get guidance for the next step by listening to these whispers that I am talking about today. Whispers come to all of us, and if we are open to them, we will stop and take a look at the subtle thoughts that they are. These gentle thoughts will give us a new life. Choose Only Love calls it “freedom.” A Course in Miracles calls it “limitless” and “joyous” living. Are the two received books not saying the same thing? Talking about the same incredible journey that lies ahead of us?
Be reintroduced to spontaneity in our pathway toward the future. God’s guidance, the guidance of the inner Christ, and the Holy Spirit all will take us to a new place of contentment and peace.
We won’t lose anything when we turn aside from seriousness, turn aside from egoic ways of living. Take the high road as we give up our desire to hold the reins of our life so tightly.
Be flexible in our decisions, turning on a dime when we receive guidance.
Experience true freedom for the first time since childhood.
