Living by a Different Set of Rules
When we know, trust, and heed the Light and Love of God that dwells within us and seeks to be made known in the world through us, we soon learn that our life takes on a quality of ease and effortlessness that defies the so-called rules of Western culture. As my soul-brother Jared observed, “The rules that seem to apply to everyone else do not apply to me. I seem to be living by a different set of rules.” Amen brother, amen!
To those continuing to choose the status quo and the “regular” world, the way that our lives seem to unfold might look like magic. Alternatively, the choices we make and the way things seems to magically happen in our lives will confound, frighten, maybe even tick them off. The truth is that while it might look like magic, it is not magic in the sense of how it has been presented in the “law of attraction,” neither is it the result of manipulating the elements or casting a spell. Instead, the magic that unfolds in our lives is the simple consequence of choosing love over fear.
The Magic Formula
The formula is simple:
1) Sit down, shut up and LISTEN to how God is calling you to live your life.
2) Seek the peacefulness, expansiveness, joy, fulfillment and love WITHIN that are the hallmarks of God’s divine plan for you.
3) Do what God tells you.
4) When fear, temptation, resistance, doubt, arise (or when others tell you you are crazy), bring your attention to the light and love of God within you. Return to God’s peace and allow this peace to encourage you through the fear. Return to God’s plan for you.
KISS – Keep it simple silly!
That’s pretty much it. When we take time to listen to God and do what God’s love tells us to do, EVERYTHING we need simply falls into our laps (sometimes by the skin of our teeth…..but it is there! This is where trust and surrender become critical). We can get off the hamster wheel of ceaseless striving that is favored in our Western society and simply ALLOW our lives to unfold and flow effortlessly. In making God the center of our life, and allowing God to be our guide, our teacher, our helper, we are choosing love over fear. It is only in fear that our lives become anxious, fretful, worrisome, constricted, stressful. As Paul once said, “In perfect love there is no fear.” This is the truth we are attempting to embrace and the love we are attempting to embody so that God’s magic can live in and through us….and then we really are able to enjoy a magical, miraculous life and participate in the magic that God wants to unfold in our world.
