# More is Less and Less is More

Spirit tells me that He understands my fear
that I might lose my own identity and become
consumed into His truth instead of being free
to discover my own.

It would be foolish not to be afraid, He assures me,
but not to risk that possible outcome, if it was
possible, would not be wise for someone like me.

He seems to know that His higher awareness has or is                                                                                            an irresistible temptation to me. I seem to very much                                                                                           want and need to learn from Him all that He can teach                                                                                          me about life and how it might be lived in service to                                                                                       Life itself without serving myself less.

He tells me that, at least in this case, and possibly
in all cases, more is less and less is more, depending
upon our focus.

# When to resist temptation, and when not to

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.
