“Here, then, we begin to let the secret out of the bag. Separation was not because you sinned. Separation was not because something terrible went wrong. Separation was just another form of the dance of creation itself, perhaps taken to extremes. For God seeks the limits of what is unlimited.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 16, Page 199)
Quotations like this I find imminently reassuring. God is in charge, though we have the illusion of being in charge, too. And being part of Him, this interpretation is not all wrong.
If separation was not something terrible that went wrong, then we can be assured that everything will all turn out alright over time. We can rest easy.
“God seeks the limits of what is unlimited.” A blessed thought!
A Course of Love says that God and we chose the separation, that God “let go” when he sensed our impatience. If we had not then become frightened and formed a false god, an ego, everything would have gone much better for us. And it will go much better for us now that we too are “letting go,” letting go of the ego.
God knows what He is doing. And we can have some of His knowledge through going deep within and asking for understanding. He listens.
