Why do we sometimes feel that we aren’t worthy of being blessed by the Divine? Why is it that we emotionally back ourselves into a corner to force ourselves to make a choice to only rely on ourselves? Is it because we fear that the Divine might want us to do something other than what we have our hearts set on? Or is it that we want to be in control to justify our own feelings of accomplishment and power?
Whatever it may be, our egos continually create scenarios for us to react to emotionally to be in control over ourlives. We create emotional ‘buttons’ that we put out in front of us daring others to push them to convince ourselves to listen to the yearnings of our egos. It is a fool’s game that we have to deal with every day of our lives.
If we choose to emotionally react to what we believe is happening to us, the self-survival mechanism of our ego comes into play. We either run toward (fight) or run away from (flight) that which we perceive as being threatening to our survival. If we choose to spiritually proact, we allow that which is to be and we don’t attach any emotional baggage to it. We simply accept it occurrence and move on.
But what are the advantages to this, you may ask? It is when we become too emotionally involved inour experiences in life is when we become distracted from unfolding our Divine purposes in Divine order. We get sidetracked by what we ‘believe’ is important and substantial to our existence instead of what we ‘know’ is important. Living for the mutual fulfillment of all means that we forego being reactive emotionally in favor of being proactive spiritually; in essence, we get rid of what we don’t need in favor of what we do need. However, we still need to feel worthy of receiving it!
If we choose to allow the Spirit of God to guide us we stop emotionally reacting to our ego’s yearnings and we proact from the Spirit of God sharing Divine love with everyone. We allow the Divine to steer the course and we sublimate our egos to being the co-pilot or passenger.
When we actively do this we align ourselves with Divine order in order to fulfill our Divine purpose. We live from the Divine love that we are and not from the selfishness of our egos. We know that we are divine beings that are worthy of living in perfection! Be ye therefore perfect. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
