The Illusion of Control

Matthew 11:28 says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.”

Spiritual Rest is the place of Loving Intimacy with God. Spirit desires to meet with us in times of Spiritual Rest, to simply love us and restore us through intimacy with no expectations.

I woke up today thinking about my message and sat in meditation focusing my energy on the embrace of Spirit’s Love moving through my entire being. I found my mind rolling through the week, recalling how I spoke with people and hearing how these difficult times are effecting their lives. I sat with myself and pondered how it is affecting my life and how much it’s taken a toll on my own consciousness as well.

In this loving presence I relaxed into my being–into the stillness–feeling my inner soul as tears rolled down my face. The message I received was “That which is happening in other people’s lives is none of your business. You can hold space for others, but their burdens are not yours.”

I am not God. I am a conduit of God. I don’t have the answers for others. Only God has that wisdom. I felt a sense of relief come over me as I surrendered my illusion of control to God. As long as there is attachment to things that are unstable, unreliable, changing and impermanent, there will be suffering.

Join me in diving into how we all can get through this Illusion of Control together. This is a message on Hope & Vision for Dropping the Illusion and Awakening to the True Beauty of Life.
