Strike Day #2: I will step back and let Him lead the way

Erika Awakening Went On Strike – Day 2


I feel amused by the alarm expressed by many about me being on strike. There is nothing wrong. Everything is perfect. I am doing as I’m being directed.

Speaking of which, since I’m on strike, I’ll let the Course speak to this question:

“Strictly speaking, words play no part at all in healing. The motivating factor is prayer, or asking. …

“Is the teacher of God, then, to avoid the use of words in his teaching? No, indeed! There are many who must be reached through words, being as yet unable to hear in silence. The teacher of God must, however, learn to use words in a new way. Gradually, he learns how to let his words be chosen for him by ceasing to decide for himself what he will say. This process is merely a special case of the lesson in the workbook that says, ‘I will step back and let Him lead the way.’ The teacher of God accepts the words which are offered him, and gives as he receives. He does not control the direction of his speaking. He listens and hears and speaks.

“A major hindrance in this aspect of his learning is the teacher of God’s fear about the validity of what he hears. And what he hears may indeed be quite startling. It may also seem to be quite irrelevant to the presented problem as he perceives it, and may, in fact, confront the teacher with a situation that appears to be very embarrassing to him. All these are judgments that have no value. They are his own, coming from a shabby self-perception which he would leave behind. Judge not the words that come to you, but offer them in confidence. They are far wiser than your own. God’s teachers have God’s Word behind their symbols. And He Himself gives to the words they use the power of His Spirit, raising them from meaningless symbols to the Call of Heaven itself.”

Is this strike a situation that “appears to be very embarrassing” to me? Perhaps. But this is what intuition directed me to do.

This is what I teach to those of my clients who are ready to hear. We get nowhere in this world listening to “advice.” The only reliable sources of guidance are our own intuition and the intuition of others who are tapped in to the infinite wisdom.

    What year is acim?

    Besides that, there exists parallel evolution in te natural world as well. Hard to pinpoint origins

    SMoKeLioN,

    Yes, very perceptive. The Matrix trilogy also tracks A Course in Miracles.

    And guess which of the three came first in "time"? I'll give a hint, it wasn't the movies.

    Love,
    Erika

    George Lucas is going to be pissed if he finds out that ACIM has stolen his shit!

    Lets All Fuck!

    I feel bemused and embarassed and a little teary eyed.

    i meant everyone not just us 3.

    i dont want to feel bad and embarassed though

    i hope this doesn't mean anything about the forthcoming e-book… will it be out this month?

  7. Erika says:

    I like that, Phil, thank you :-)

    It's this deep trust in the words and instructions that come, without regard for outcome.

    Even if mayhem erupts, like with the condoms post, a quiet confidence in the healing purpose behind the words.

  8. Phil says:

    Here's what I read today in the Ebook Beyond Karma:

    "If we can completely see and accept who we have become, and own up to it, then the craving-struggle-achievement-craving turns into the effortless flow of intention-action-‘don’t mind what happens’. We haven’t invested ourselves or the idea of happiness in the outcome. Life flows, without struggle. Living is intention-action,
