Spirit tells me that it isn’t necessary for me to let go of
The steering wheel of my life until I can do so willingly,
And with confidence that God, Life, The Universe, or
He will take control.
But, He suggests that if I can learn to relax and gradually
Release the tenseness of my grip on the wheel, then
This will improve the quality of the ride and allow me to
Enjoy the scenery.
Spirit tells me that resisting temptation is, or can be
Habit-forming and a source of self-satisfaction,
Unless we resist temptation solely for the sake of
Resisting temptation, in order to receive
Blessings from Heaven. In such a case, He tells me
(as if I didn’t know), no great benefit would be earned.
Pleasures are or can be blessings to ourselves,
As a token of self-love. And, He tells me, we
Would be incapable of loving anyone or
Anything (for those who might consider God as a
Thing) if we cannot, for whatever reason,
Love ourselves, whom God loves dearly.
My Spirit Teacher is not God, but
He is much closer to the real thing
Than I am ever likely to get,
At least in this lifetime.
