GIVING UP THE FIGHT

“ For you must be as God created you. Truth does not fight against illusions, nor do illusions fight against the truth. Illusions battle only with themselves. Being fragmented, they fragment. But truth is indivisible, and far beyond their [illusions] little reach. You will remember what you know when you have learned you cannot be in conflict. One illusion about yourself can battle with another, yet the war of two illusions is a state where nothing happens. There is no victor and there is no victory. And truth stands radiant, apart from conflict, untouched and quiet in the peace of God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will gladly wave the white flag of absolute surrender today; surrendering to God.”

If we think we have to stand apart from God and fight for our protection and our rights, we need to take a quiet moment and stand back and recognize that that thinking is what keeps our world at war; war inside our families, inside our communities, inside our country and in the world. And inside each one of us.

We don’t need to be at war with each other. We’ve already tried that and look at our world. Clearly that doesn’t work. What we need is to learn a better way.

Trying to solve the world’s problems at the level of the world is impossible. At the level of the world we are blinded by our own fears and anger and sadness and limited by our misperceptions and misunderstandings and past experiences. Instead we need to ask for help to rise above the fray and ask God for a better way. “On our own we can do nothing, but in God are all our problems solved.” ACIM

Every time we attack another, no matter how “right” and “righteous” we feel, we are allowing ourselves to be part of the problem and have let the solution fade from our sight. And now we’re stuck in the same old, archaic thinking that has kept this world in chaos since the beginning of time.

How can we doubt we need another way? A way that does not put up barriers to healing, but opens our minds and hearts to God’s Healing. We can’t fix our relationships, the country or the world with our judgmental and righteous thinking. When we try, we block God’s Love from flowing through us and make enemies of our brothers and sisters. We need to be loving channels for Him, one mind and heart at a time. Then and only then are we part of the solution.  “My part is essential to God’s Plan for salvation.” A Course In Miracles

Instead of blocking God by standing strong in our own limiting convictions for more fighting and more defensiveness, we need to bow our heads, drop to our knees and confess, “I don’t know how to fix this, God, but You do.”

And then let it go. Let our anger go. Let our lack of trust in ourselves and our brothers and sisters go. Let go of our need to have revenge and thinking vengeance and fighting back is the answer. And let go of the thought that God is allowing the insanity of the world. God can’t stop what we have chosen. God didn’t give us free will, He designed us with free will. Free will is imbedded into our Being by God and cannot be overridden by Him or anyone. His intention was that our will be His Will. If we choose another will, He can’t stop us, but if we choose our natural State of Being by choosing His will for us which is Love, then and only then can He help us.
