Clarity and Surrender

As I sit here, on my first day off in our new home, I feel great anticipation for what lies ahead. I am astounded by this one idea: one day I was focused on finding a house and moving. Now I am sitting here in a beautiful new home. How did it happen?

When you allow for the Infinite Intelligence to work through you, really allow it, you will not know how it happened. It will seem like a miracle, but in Reality, it was the most natural consequence of your spiritual work.

I have found that “surrender” is the key to living my life in alignment with Spirit. I have found that clarity without compromise is the beginning of any good mental/spiritual work. I’ve been a Religious Scientist for 20 years now and I have grown into this philosophy. I’ve done it through constant practice and deepening. I haven’t taken no for an answer. I’ve been stubborn and controlling, and I’ve gotten off course many times. I kept studying and applying what I was learning. I allowed myself to start where I was. I tried very hard not to beat myself up and spent lots of time forgiving me. I made it the most important thing in my life. The most important thing: my communion with the Infinite and to prove that the Law works for me in every part of my life.

When I say I feel great anticipation for what lies ahead, I can say it because I know that I have a partner that is at my command and that the more I can believe in its Power, the more Power it will have for me and my life. Love leads my way and the Law makes my way possible. I am not doing it, but I am creating an open avenue to allow it to happen. Again, it is clarity and surrender that are my tools.

Ernest Holmes once wrote, “”We are not depending on a reed shaken by the wind, but on the Principle of Life Itself, for all that we have or ever shall need. It is not some power, or a great power, it is ALL POWER.  …We know that there can be no failure in God’s Mind, and this Mind is the Power on which we are depending.”

Time to get to work again and again. What a journey!

Love and Aloha,

Rev. Rita
