Human life is always under the control of a Higher Reality—God. The more you are aware of this Utmost Reality, the more you will seek to cooperate with God. In so doing you will be guided and directed by the God-Level of your mind to do things that will produce good results in your life.
As people grow older, those who seem to be the healthiest and happiest are those who live more balanced lives—looking after body, mind, and soul by exercising the body, stimulating the mind, and satisfying the soul by making God’s Presence within themselves an integral part of their daily lives.
If you don’t like something, change it. That may be easier said than done, because what needs changing was probably created by the ego level of your mind. To make a real change you must change your consciousness, by giving up the ego and connecting through meditation to the God level of your mind.
When you hear someone say, “I don’t even trust myself anymore,” the self they don’t trust is the personal ego—a false sense of self that creates misery and failure in life. But in every person there is also a Real Self, which is one with God’s Presence. That is where you can always place your trust.
Life requires constant adjustments. You can make those adjustments at the ego level of your mind, with all of its limitations and fears of the unknown. Or you can let the God level of your mind be in control of all necessary adjustments. Which do you think will have better results?
In today’s world, things that used to work in the past no longer do. They are memories in the ego level of the mind. Things that will work today are future realities held in the God level of the mind. To reach that level, release the ego every day to the all-knowing Consciousness of God within you.
God brings people into your life so you can learn something about yourself. From difficult people you learn what happens when one functions at the ego level of the mind. From those who brought you happiness you learn what happens when one draws closer to God’s Presence within.
