“Beloved friends, The Way of Transformation does, indeed, require your commitment. Where you feel that your commitment has wavered, simply choose anew. And the end of the journey must be perfectly certain.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 15, Page 180)
It is impossible to go through life without getting demoralized, at least part of the time—and this is especially true on this path to Christ-consciousness (Way of Transformation). We are apt to get impatient when we try, and try, and try some more, and God doesn’t see it our way. Because he has to make the decision of when we are ready.
What do we do? We take a step back and decide that He knows more than we do. Then we develop some patience with his timing.
The transformation may come suddenly. I know a man who recently experienced this Awakening in the midst of “venting” his frustration to his wife. He was very surprised to sense that transformation had indeed occurred—but it was unmistakable. And in the next second, he knew that this was not a glimpse, that it would last.
What was going on here? God was telling him that the suppression of his anger, for many years, was not truthful. He had been actually keeping himself from experiencing Christ-consciousness by trying to be something he wasn’t.
He had thought that fear was the problem. But the actual moment of Awakening taught him otherwise.
Ask to have blocks like the one of this man removed for us. God knows what is keeping us with feet of clay. Ask to be elevated from the Earth today. Ask what is the impediment.
He will respond.
