Whatever arises in your mind as thought or feeling comes from one of two sources: the ego or the Holy Spirit.
There are no others.
The ego speaks to you through a constant stream of thoughts, feelings, and impulses, whose purpose is to dominate the conscious mind, control its attention faculty, and keep it busy reacting to and acting out egoic content.
You can change your mind about the world’s purpose, accepting the Holy Spirit’s purpose in place of the one you have given it.
To do so is necessary if you would free yourself from its effects, and allow miracles to enter your life.
Accept the Holy Spirit’s purpose for everything in your life, and allow Him to assign meaning and use everything that happens for your awakening.
To listen to Him is to bring the present alive in your mind.
