“The way is not hard, but it IS very different. Yours is the way of pain, of which God knows nothing. THAT way is hard indeed, and very lonely. Fear and grief are your guests, and they go with you, and abide with you on the way…”
Walking in the light requires acceptance, acceptance that you have been completely nuts. You have walked the way of dreams/nightmares, and you are finally starting to see that there is something else available to you. That’s a nice place to be. And if it takes some practice, then so be it. What else would time be for, anyway?
“…But the dark journey is not the way of God’s Son. Walk in light, and do not see the dark companions, for they are not fit companions for the Son of God, who was created OF Light and IN Light. The Great Light ALWAYS surrounds you, and shines out FROM you.”
So now, as you go about your day all the little things that jump out at you to pull you off the track can looked from a whole new perspective.
“Let not the little interferers pull you to littleness. There CAN be no attraction of guilt in innocence. Think what a happy world you walk, with truth beside you! Do not give up this world of freedom, for a little sigh of seeming sin, nor for a tiny stirring of guilt’s attraction. Would you, for all these meaningless distractions, lay Heaven aside?”
