In A Course in Miracles, Jesus tells us that miracles should be involuntary and that they should not be under conscious control. (T-1.I.5) When we find ourselves being happy for no earthly reason, or we are in a flow, that is the miracle! You can yield into it, but you cannot control it.
All that we are asked to do, is to ask Jesus, “How would you have me serve? What would you have me do?” Jesus can perform miracles indiscriminately because he knows where in the plan of Awakening our strengths would be most helpful. He has the bird’s-eye view, the Spirit’s-eye view, of everything.
The doer wants everything to be under conscious control. Its focus is always on the form instead of the mind. Yet, miracles are completely involuntary. Hearing and following the guidance of the Spirit in every moment is the most important thing that we can focus our attention on. We all have this capacity a course in miracles, because we all have the connection, or that link, with the Spirit within us.
It does not matter what your history is, because where this is leading, is way beyond the perception of a “normal life” to something that is most extraordinary, most exquisite, and unspeakable!
Now you can really open up and think, What would it be like to watch the days unfold without any sense of directing or planning anything? What would it be like if I were not trying to plan my life based on past learning, programming, and conditioning?
To come into this beautiful experience means that you have to come into “the zone” with the Course—to go so deep and be so devoted with the practice that, just like a pianist or violinist, you are not thinking when you are out “on the stage.” You are being used as an instrument. You are simply in the zone.
Being in the zone means that you are being done through, sung through, smiled through. It is an involuntary flow and movement when you are aligned with the Spirit. There will be an experience that will end your doubting, an experience of supreme joy!
How Spontaneous Are You Willing to Be?
We have to start to realize that our thoughts are causative and only our thoughts. There are no causes and effects in the world. When you come to the realization that you are free, you are no longer at the mercy of the world. Then you can have a good smile on your face; you see a beautiful unified picture.
Everything was always in the divine flow, the flow was all that there was—this beautiful, abstract flow. It is safe to let go. Your life does not fall apart; your mind integrates and recognizes itself.
