“When you have opened the floodgates of your consciousness, allowing everything you experience, whatever it may be, to be embraced, then you will live as what you are: the holy abode of Christ.” COL bk.2, 19:II
Embracing our experiences is, as Choose Only Love says, necessary to our continued march toward God. Others have said just to dismiss negativity, but perhaps the better Answer, as COL says, is to integrate the negativity; overcome the fear with love.
This is scary business—but it works! There is absolutely nothing that the power of Love cannot overcome. If we dismiss our thoughts of negative outcomes, the negative things may very well just go underground in our subconscious, just waiting there to make us uneasy and then to rear their ugly heads again. If we transmute (i.e., change the form) of our thoughts, they will never arise to hurt us again. We will be free of the bad thoughts, and we will, we know, have overcome them with the much better value of Love.
There is nothing that can’t be righted this way. As COL says elsewhere, when a worry arises, sit down, relax, take a deep breath, connect with our desire for something better, and then the Answer will arrive.
There is nothing that can’t be integrated toward the positive. Pushing down the negative thought by trying to put it out of mind only saves it for another rainy day.
We want to be the “holy abode of Christ.” Letting Love overwhelm us and our problems is the way to achieve this wonderful outcome.
