Message from God: book 1/178
The spirit of you seeks, in the largest sense, that grand moment when you have conscious awareness of its wishes, and join in joyful oneness with them. But the spirit will never, ever, force its desire on the present, conscious, physical part of you.
The Father will not force His will upon the Son. It is a violation of His very nature to do so, and thus, quite literally, impossible.
The Son will not force His will upon the Holy Spirit. It is against His very nature to do so, and thus, quite literally, impossible.
The Holy Spirit will not force His will upon your soul. It is outside of the nature of the spirit to do so, and thus, quite literally, impossible.
Here is where the impossibilities end. The mind very often does seek to exert its will on the body, and does so. Similarly, the body seeks often to control the mind, and frequently succeeds.
Yet the body and the mind together do not have to do anything to control the soul, for the soul is completely without need (unlike the body and the mind, which are shackled with it) and so allows the body and the mind to have their way all the time.
Indeed, the soul would have it no other way, for if the entity which is you is to create, and thus know, who it really is, it must be through an act of conscious volition, not an act of unconscious obedience.
Obedience is not creation, and thus can never produce salvation.
Obedience is a response, while creation is pure choice, undictated, unrequired.
Pure choice produces salvation through the pure creation of highest idea in this moment now.
The function of the soul is to indicate its desire, not impose it.
The function of the mind is to choose from its alternatives.
The function of the body is to act out that choice.
When the body, mind, and soul create together, in harmony and in unity, God is made flesh.
Then does the soul know itself in its own experience.
Then do the heavens rejoice.
Right now, in this moment, your soul has again created opportunity for you to be, do, and have what it takes to know Who You Really Are.
Your soul has brought you to the words you are reading right now, as it has brought you to words of wisdom and truth before.
What will you do now? What will you choose to be?
Your soul waits, and watches with interest, as it has many times before.
