There is no conflict, for my will is Yours. (ACIM Lesson 331) There simply can’t be. This is what Katie’s talking about: loving what is. With only the three types of business – mine, yours and God’s – and with the realization that I have no business of my own, comes the understanding that there is only one type of business: and that is what is. How can there be any conflict when what is is what I want?
It is so simple, so straightforward, and yet so easy to forget. The moment I get caught up in ‘my’ business, the moment I think I know what I want or need; the moment I ‘know’, it all gets forgotten in the blink of an eye. And, of course, the consequences are even more extreme when I think I know what someone else needs or how the world should be different.
All I need do in these moments – identified easily by the discomfort they produce – is remember that I must have decided wrongly, that I tried to make a decision by myself. All I need do is remember to breathe, and in that breath, remember.
