I greet The Indwelling Struggle.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Our Gethsemane – is our transforming struggle when we are faced with the realization that Divine Truth as the one reality. We all have our own Gethsemane where we have to decide who will be our Boss? Whose will we are to follow? Mother Teresa said that we all have our own Calcutta, which I believe to be our created purpose. I don’t think we will find our fulfillment in this life until we are in alignment with that purpose, and are willing to dedicate and sacrifice all for it. A.A. gives us the spiritual tools to uncover and discover our habits of thoughts and feelings stored in our sub-consciousness, which are blocking our individual created purpose. Then we may say to those close to us, as my Hero Jesus did, “My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here and watch with me. And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me, nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.” We cannot trust others to make our decisions or even stay awake while we are passing through the dark night of the soul. “…the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. “Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.” Life’s not about waiting for the storm to pass it’s about learning to dance in the rain. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
