I greet The Indwelling Presence of I Am.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – The I Am Within You And Me
– A child of our Father, and He is our true Source, and our inheritance is from Him also. The I Am is the created Higher Self dwelling within you and me, whom our Father made in His image and likes, I am told. The I Am is the gate through which our thoughts come forth from the silent invisible, and it is through this gate that we go to get into the indwelling Presence of Spirit. “This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” I think Shakespeare must have been a mystic. Michelangelo took a rough piece of marble and chipped away everything that did not look like the vision of David; he held in his mind. Working the A.A. Program can aid the chipping away what is not like our Father's vision of the I Am, the individual He created. My greatest Hero came into this world as an archetype; fully Divine and human. We can be awakened to our Father’s Divine Design; we only need to be willing. The will is the directive power that decides the character formation. “Not my will, but thine, be done.” A.A. offers us both the Divine and human tools to chip away all that is not our individually intended purposeful Self. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
