“To empathize does not mean to join in suffering.”
We do not join in the illusion. We join only in truth. To truly join with another is to join with the Light that they are. We do not see the façade of the problems one is mired in. We see only hope in healing.
“Step gently aside, and let healing be done for you. Keep but one thought in mind and do not lose sight of it, however tempted you may be to judge any situation, and to determine your response by judging it. Focus your mind only on this:
I am not alone, and I would not intrude the past upon my Guest.
I have invited Him, and He is here.
I need do nothing except not to interfere.”
We step aside and allow Holy Spirit to lead the way. Why should we entangle ourselves in something we by ourselves cannot do? We keep our eyes on Heaven’s Help. It will call to us and offer us the miracle. The question we ask is, “Am I ready to see all things as Holy Spirit sees them, or do I want to continue to join in pain?”
The answer I give is what will lead me either down the path of love or the path of fear. My role is to join in peace. Let peace step forward as I step behind. I know not peace. I have known only the ego’s definition of peace. I am willing to be taught. Teach me dear Holy Spirit how to truly join with You and my brothers here.
