God’s will

 

God’s will.

Those two simple words are fertile ground for exploration.

What is God’s will?

When I look, I find it is what is. This is God’s will.

If God is another name for reality, for all there is, then God’s will is what is.

I can explore this in immediacy, outside of stories. And I can explore this within and filtered through stories.

When I explore it in immediacy, I can see what happens when there is resistance to experience, and what happens when it is allowed to be as is. Or what happens when there is identification with resistance to experience, and what happens when this resistance too is allowed as is and recognized as content of experience as anything else.

There are many ways to explore God’s will through stories.

I can ask myself, what if this is what God wants more than anything else?

What happens when I feel into it? When I soak in it?

Can I find reasons why it may be so? For instance, that this is God, independent of content. If something is possible, God is going to try it.

And it is vital feedback. It is consequences of beliefs or freedom from beliefs.

What if this is the most wise and compassionate that could happen right now?

Can I open my mind to it? Can I give it an equal chance along with my habitual views?

Can I open my heart to the situation, myself, and how I respond to the situation?

What happens when I open my heart to it? Allow it to be as is, with warmth and kindness?

There are also other ways to explore God’s will.

For instance, what creates opposition to God’s will? For me, I find beliefs. Whenever I am caught up in a belief, there is a should, and this should is inevitably at odds with life. What happens when I am caught up in a belief? What happens when there is more clarity?

Also, the most basic opposition to reality is the I story, when not recognized as a story. What happens when there is the recognition of the I story, as the whole package including everything coming out of it? What happens when it is identified with, when there is a sense of that’s what I am?

Either one of these possibilities are fine. Either one is God expressing, exploring and experiencing itself.

And it is good to notice the effects of both. One comes from confusion and mistaken identity and creates a sense of unease or suffering. The other comes from more clarity.

      • only thing that falls away is the I story
      • still function well, take care of what needs to be taken care of etc.
      • function better, b/c more free from hangups, reactivity, confusion

– what if, of all the infinite possibilities, this is the absolutely best?
– what if this is God’s will and God is infinitely good?
– what if this is optimal, right here and now?
>> what if this is how God wants to experience itself, here and now, more than anything else?
– including – this too is God as is, independent of content, and it is feedback

– both (a) outside of stories, in immediacy, and (b) inside of stories – of me, time, the world etc.

………..

If God is another name for reality, for what is, then God’s will is what is.

………..

God’s voice, every sound. And God is always speaking through all/as all of us, sometimes confused, sometimes more clear.

………..

When I explore it in immediacy, I can see what happens when there is resistance to experience, and what happens when it is allowed to be as is. Or rather, what happens when there is identification with (the viewpoint of) resistance, and what happens when I notice experience is already allowed as is. Or said yet another way, what happens when there is identification with an impulse to change experience, and what happens when that impulse too is allowed and recognized as content of experience as anything else.

……….

What is God’s will?

When I look, I find it is what is. This is God’s will.

If God is another name for reality, for all there is, then God’s will is what is.
