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.
It stands to reason that the closer you are to God’s Presence at the innermost center of your mind, the more of God’s knowingness will be available to the outer levels of your mind. Such knowingness may include greater understanding of the mysteries of life, or guidance from God in dealing with the more practical matters of life.
There are many things in today’s world that could create a worldwide crisis. If such an event were to occur, you must allow God’s Presence within you to be control of your awareness to do what is necessary for the good of yourself and others. Your ego will only react with fear, confusion, or helplessness.
If you truly wish to improve your life, give up your ego and its will to God’s will daily. When you do, you enter into conscious cooperation with the Universal God level of your mind, which will give you a better understanding of what is taking place in your life and how to be in harmony with it.
Life is better if you take time to be with your “self” each day. No, not your ego self. Your real self—that part of you that is eternally one with God. Through this daily communion you will better know what is of real value in life, and what direction God wants you to take to fulfill your soul’s purpose.
