As you develop a greater relationship to God’s Presence within yourself, you will realize that the more you allow the ego to guide you, the more downs you will experience in life. However, the more you give up the ego to God’s Presence, the more ups you will experience—meaning more success and more happiness.
To have a better life, you need to become adept at separating reality from illusion. To do this, remember that all illusions stem from the one illusion of having a separate ego identity. Remove that illusion and all other illusions give way to the reality of what is and what is not—the reality known by your real self . . . your soul.
It is said that when you want to get something done, ask a busy person. Why? Because their state of mind is in the cosmic zone of accomplishing things. In other words, their consciousness is on the same wavelength as God’s Presence within themselves, which is always busy getting things done for everyone.
What is the most important thing in your life? Your health? Love? Income? Power? Prestige? Something else? The most important thing in your life should be God. Because God makes all the rest possible. Remember, only God knows what you really need in life, and what is best for your soul’s purpose.
If you react to bad news with fear, anger, depression, and so on, it is because you are dealing with that news from the limited understanding of your ego. So how can you release that initial negativity and restore a sense of peace within yourself? Turn the issue over to God’s Presence at the center of your mind.
No matter how much you want to succeed at something, success does not come from how hard you try. Success—or lack of success—is always the result of God’s will. To be more successful in life is really a matter of being more tuned into God’s will, and letting God intuitively guide you in all things.
As a soul makes its way through eternity, questions will eventually enter one’s thoughts, such as: “What is life?” and “What is this life I am living?” The ego cannot answer those questions, but the God level of the mind can. By meditating daily, God will reveal those answers to the extent that the soul is ready.
