I greet The Indwelling Awakener.
Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – Awakening. Spiritual discernment is, the ability to distinguish when we are judging with our personal “reality” or awakening to our spiritual Higher Self. Having had a spiritual awaken as the result of living A.A.’s spiritual principles in all our affairs, at least some of the time, we are given a taste of spiritual discernment. Transmutation is the conversion of one element into another. Our conscious is changing in action and character to conform to spiritual principles. Experiencing our world changing from our made up world to Reality. The transforming our selfish self-centeredness into enlightened Self-interest. This gift is given to us by Divine grace, unearned or deserved, we are opened by grace to receive this gift. To keep it and experience its expansion we need to pass it on, pay it forward. When our powerlessness is raised up experiencing the omnipresence of our Father, Creator, we are able to spiritual discern His Love and His Will, in the present moment. When we attempt to confine the divine spiritual principles to our personal “reality”, our made up world view and scoff at anything beyond, we may become A.A. Pharisees “My way or the highway.” Practicing A.A.’s spiritual principles until we awaken from our denial, and surrendering all we are aware of getting in our spiritual path, and receiving the gift of spiritual discernment, even if we have become a temporary Pharisee. We are introduced to our Higher Self, consciously and consistently receiving daily miracles. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
