Spiritual enlightenment cannot be forced. Miracles cannot be forced. Pushing for proof, demanding a sign, creating the opportunity for a miracle will be met with disappointment. Any such action that dictates the results is ego based and will be met with silence because the ego cannot do what you have demanded be done.
It is only through observation and letting go of the illusion of reality that you can embrace your true self and experience the miracles that surround us every day. To do so, you must live only in the moment, not concerned with the future or the past. Be totally committed to the present, to your true self as a Child of Creation.
With that commitment, fear disappears and is replace by total Peace and Joy. You may only achieve this state of being for a moment, but when you do, time stands still and you know you are Home.
You cannot fight your ego for this state of being, because that will only give power and meaning to your ego’s existence. Do you understand this premise? By acknowledging the ego as being in control, you empower the ego. By acknowledging fear, your fear grows and will ultimately consume you.
You can only free yourself from your ego by letting go, putting it down and walking away. Same with fear. It is not real and it should be treated as such.
To fight the ego gives it meaning. Ego is an illusion of your making. Give it fully to your Higher Self. Invite your Higher Self to take over the role of the ego and trust in that invitation.
Give the ego away, not as something of value, but as you would a garment you no longer need. Only then can you begin your journey Home in earnest. The miracle already is. You will recognize it when you are ready.
