God’s will and my will are the same

 

God’s will and my will are the same, whether I notice it or not.

It may be easy to think that some things are God’s will, especially the things that clearly seems out of my control – such as the weather, life events, illness and so on. And other things may be my will, especially the things that seem to be in my control – such as my thoughts, choices and actions. And yet, is that true? What do I find when I take a closer look?

When I look, I find that thoughts, choices and actions happens, there is a thought that “I did that”, and it may be believed or not.

And when a thought is taken as true, it creates a should (a need, want), life may show up differently, and there is the appearance of my will opposing God’s will.

If God is reality, then reality includes what may appear my will. It’s all God’s will.

What I think of as my will is God’s will.

The appearance of my will is created by a thought. A thought, choice or action happens, there is a thought that “I did that”, and it’s taken as true or not.

And what may appear as my will opposed to God’s will is created by a belief. I take a story as true, this creates a should (or a need or want), life shows up differently, and there is a story that my will – my should, is opposed to God’s will – life as it can or does show up.

When I look, I cannot find my will anywhere. It’s all God’s will.

And this reveals that it’s all “my will” in the sense that reality is all there is.

What is, is God’s will, including the appearance of “my” will.

And the appearance of a will that’s “mine” is all related to beliefs.

(a) There is a thought, an emotion, a choice, an action., a story that “I did that”, and taking that story as true or not. So the label of “my will” comes from a story, and this can be taken as true or not.

(b) And when any thought is taken as true, there is a sense of opposition to (other aspects of) reality. So there is the appearance of “my will”, an apparent need, want or should, in opposition to “God’s will” – other aspects of reality.

For instance, (i) there is a belief that “I need to be healthy”, (ii) another belief that there is illness, which leads to (iii) the appearance of “my will” (desire for health) in opposition to “God’s will” (illness). And all of that is God’s will.
