I feel such tension because now I’m more sensitive to the effects of my choices, how the world is initiated and how relationships are set up, and how sex is likely to be. Please help me to understand what is happening.
David Hoffmeister: Thanks for writing and sharing what is on your heart. The desire for sex (and other ego appetites) falls away, usually gradually and progressively over the years of mind training. Allow the Holy Spirit to Guide, and your head 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 will be. Defenses are outgrown, as a kid outgrows toys that once seemed exciting and enjoyable. The focus is never on the proper execution, but always on your head training.
I once felt exactly the same tension and sensitivity you are these are, and my first steps in surrendering my life to the Holy Spirit was allowing all my emotions to freely arrive at the top of awareness with repressing them. This was intense, and yet with much mind training this eventually passed.
Take a moment and inquire about that very important question: Where do I think my safety lies? This whole world—everything that individuals perceive through the five senses—is made on unconscious fear. How can this be? By the ability of our mind. Your head simply can only just see what it believes, which explains why we have to release false beliefs acim podcast apple. In the long run, the spiritual journey becomes about facing this unconscious fear. Here is the transformation of the projected world into peace. When we perceive something fearful, we are able to always allow ourselves to set aside a second to pause as opposed to react. By going for 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 start to forget about habitual reacting and conditioned behaviors. We then start to open around inspiration.
