I feel such tension because now I’m more sensitive to the consequences of my choices, how the entire world is set up and how relationships are set up, and how sex is likely to be. Please help me to know what is happening.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for writing and sharing what’s on your heart. The desire for sex (and other ego appetites) falls away, usually gradually and progressively over the years of mind training. Permit the Holy Spirit to Guide, and the mind unwinds from everything it believed in and pursued. Yet do not project awareness to where you think you “want” it to be or “believe” it should be acim apple podcast. Defenses are outgrown, as a child outgrows toys that after seemed exciting and enjoyable. The focus is never on the shape, but always on the mind training.
I once felt exactly the same tension and sensitivity you’re these are, and my first steps in surrendering my life to the Holy Spirit was allowing all my emotions to freely arrive at the surface of awareness with repressing them. This was intense, and yet with much mind training this eventually passed.
Take a moment and inquire about that essential question: Where do I think my safety lies? This whole world—everything that individuals perceive through the five senses—is created on unconscious fear. Just how can this be? By the ability of our mind. The mind simply can only just see what it believes, which explains why we have to release false beliefs. Ultimately, the spiritual journey becomes about facing this unconscious fear. This is the transformation of the projected world into peace. Once we perceive something fearful, we are able to always allow ourselves to take the time to pause rather than react. By having a moment to open our minds and invite Holy Spirit into our perception, we invite a miraculous shift in how we see things, and we are able to begin to forget about habitual reacting and conditioned behaviors. We then begin to open as much as inspiration.
