Does God solve problems? Probably not.
But, I can see things differently and in that is my world changed. I can ask for help in seeing things differently. The Holy Spirit is who saves me with Christ vision.
A Course in Miracles states the non-existence of guilt. And this is because God, being Love, could not have created anything other than love. Created love cannot be guilty any more than God can be guilty.
Anyway, I broke the rules of non-thinking obedience at work yesterday. I woke up in the night feverish with guilt, shame and "I-am-not-good-enough-to-work-at-this-great-place." I mean really, I was attacked by negative emotion from all sides. I tried to project it out onto the company and its gate keepers. hate loomed.
Yet this morning, as I studied the ACIM text, I was reminded to let the Holy Spirit solve my problems for me. Ummm...yeah...I asked the Holy Spirit to help me with "this problem." I did my morning workout engraving in my thoughts, "I will accept forgiveness for myself." Forgiveness is overlooking, or looking beyond this world to the one of peace and light which is the real world of love. The function of the miracles worker is to accept salvation for themselves because in that they stop projecting their guilt onto others and all are seen as innocent, creations of love.
Today at work, nothing was said.
One of the first things that happened was I had an unexpected cup of coffee with 3 colleagues I don't normally see. But I got validation from them about my feelings related to stupid and inefficient work requirements. Then the first class I had was relatively interesting. Then the morning slipped quietly away. I got some work done and then the afternoon class slipped quietly away. Then I drove home on traffic-less streets in record time.
I kept saying thank you to Whomever. "This problem" has been solved and not by me.
My lessons tomorrow are so relaxing and freeing for me (remember, some of the following words are re-defined by ACIM): "Salvation is my only function here." and "God's Will for me is perfect happiness."
I am perfectly happy to surrender to the function of salvation as it means seeing things differently. and I am totally willing to have God's will of happiness for me; which I will have if I accept it.
