Dear Miracle Workers,
It’s like momma not wanting to get outa that chair, not wanting to come outside to hear the birds singing, to see the green grass and feel the soft breeze. She’ll be the one that says when she’s damn well ready to get outa that chair!
That’s kinda how I’ve been about remembering who I am. I’ll be the one who decides when I accept who I am and thus end suffering. Why would I wait? Maybe this holds a false sense of power to be the one who decides? Maybe I’m not willing to quit suffering? Maybe even though there is some pain experienced in suffering, it still is a familiar and somehow odd comfort? “My death was meant to demonstrate that the end of suffering had come, and with it, eternal life.” (ACOL-D.Day2.24)
During Jesus’s time on earth most were not willing to accept the end of suffering. Jesus made his choice to end suffering.“We will crucify it upon the cross of time and space, bury it, so that it need be no more, and demonstrate that new life follows the choice to end suffering.” (ACOL-D.Day2:23) Now, we are willing to accept who we are. I hear this message of love everyday on the television, at the grocery store, in almost every song on the radio. I notice we are all speaking of love for one another. I know if I am experiencing these changes, you are too! "And in your willingness for this lies also your acceptance of yourself as you were meant to be." (OrEd.Tx.18.33)
What is stopping me or you from accepting our true Self? From accepting the end of suffering? The only thing stopping us is our choice. Maybe it is time to damn well make that choice!
