Habits Of Giving “Pay Forward” #43

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Habits Of Giving. I have been building a habit of saying our Father at each beginning. My intention is to invite my consciousness to His Presence. Our human conditions run on habits, known or unknown. All we have to do to build a habit is to repeat something consistently long enough to set it up. We can shorten the building time by repeating whatever with strong emotions. The same process holds true for the dismantling or disempowering old habits. Our worse habits are deeply embedded in our subconscious, covered up with denial, difficult to let go of. “All things are possible with God.” “The failure of our efforts to serve teaches us how to serve: that is, with complete dependence on divine inspiration. This is what changes the World” Thomas Keating. A.A.’s program teaches us to accept what we are powerless over and then, surrender whatever to the Boss. If we do not offer any resistance to His doing for us what we cannot do; the disempowering is stepped up as our denial breaks down. At times I lack whatever it takes to trust our Father as my only Source. I remind myself it is our Father doing the work not me. I am grateful for the Prodigal Son story. I choose to turn back Home once again. “The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself” LAO-TSE. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
