All intelligence and power flows from God to us because God has become us. It is our ‘will’ that opens the channel from God to us and it is our attention that moves the intelligence and power through that channel.
When we desire something to happen, something to manifest or something to express, we will it. Then we place our attention on that act in order to move power and intelligence into creation.
When we have our attention on the act, we do not need to be concerned with the outcome any longer. That is the time to surrender the outcome to God; to His power and intelligence. Our duty is to direct attention to our action.
Surrender requires trust. This trust is the certainty that whatever outcome arrives, that is the exact outcome that God wills – because it is what is happening.
God has become us to enjoy His play of consciousness and He would only allow outcomes that fulfill His purpose. His purpose is always grace; the power of revelation. God has one purpose – to reveal the true Self – for us to realize we are one with God – our enlightenment. That is the blissful purpose and His entire reason for creation.
When we do not accept outcomes, we are in resistance and suffer. Each outcome brings us to a new platform, an expanded and stronger foundation from which to will and act. We may judge an outcome as bad or negative or wrong, but that is a misjudgment of reality. Even war and death are steps toward clearing away all that separates us from God.
There is only grace and the expansion of revelation.
