Today we’re going to look at what to do when it “looks as if” Personal Creation is not working. For this I am turning to the remarkable CWG book, Happier Than God. When it “looks as if” Personal Creation is not working that is only because the Energy of Attraction has brought you what you inadvertently selectedrather than what you thought you chose.
Many humans have been told that What God Wants is for sexual union to be experienced only with one’s spouse for the purposes of procreation and the expression of love. One result of this teaching: Millions of people believe that sex may absolutely never be experienced in any way that deliberately prevents conception, and that while sex is wonderful, to experience sex simply for pleasure with no possibility of procreation is against the will of God and, therefore, “unnatural,” immoral, shameful and a giving in to baser instincts.
The combining of pleasure and shame in this construction has produced chronic emotional confusion: wonder, excitement and passion, yet embarrassment, fear and guilt, about sexual desires and experiences.
We are not paying enough attention to our health. Not as individuals, and certainly not as a planet. This is the single most important factor in our physical lives, and most of us are simply not paying enough attention to it.
Last week I offered the opinion that the challenge for
human beings these days is to take the individual decisions that most
of us have already made about ourselves and apply them in our lives
fully, fearlessly, absolutely, and completely.
Love is a Natural Emotion. When it is allowed to be expressed, and received, by a child, normally and naturally, without limitation or condition, inhibition or embarrassment, it does not require anything more. For the joy of love expressed and received in this way is sufficient unto itself. Yet love which has been conditioned, limited, warped by rules and regulations, rituals and restrictions, controlled, manipulated, and withheld, becomes unnatural.
In my life there has been no greater challenge than the challenge of relationships. I am speaking here now of romantic relationships, although all of my relationships—parental, familial, personal, business—have been a test for me from the very beginning.
Recently the father of one of our staff members at the CwG Foundation celebrated his Continuation Day. Of course, it was a time of sadness for her loss, and we all felt it and did our best to send her our love. But the event also brought into my consciousness again the whole subject of death, and I turned then to the extraordinary book in the CwG series, HOME WITH GOD in a Life That Never Ends.
