Thy Will Be Done
By Rev. Elizabeth Rowley,
Spiritual Director
March 22, 2019

A common question asked of me by my students is how do I know if it’s my will or God’s will?

When you make choices based on your past experiences from the small self, it leads to bondage, and you are operating from the conditioned or unpolished will. Often unbeknownst to you, yet you find yourself wondering why you behaved the way you did or wished you could rewind your life and try the scenario again in complete alignment with your highest self.

When you make choices based on the present moment, in the now, and from the essence of your highest self or God Self, you are in alignment with, and operating from God’s will. There is a calm and cheerful knowing within you, rather than a mischievous or flippant uncertainty with its roots in shame or guilt.

God’s will and God’s nature are identical, and God's will and my truest will are the same. Therefore there is only one will. Getting stuck in the idea of one will vs. the other will keeps you in bondage with a belief in duality. This concept of duality goes way back to the beginning of time. We are all born into it and continue to learn more about it as our identities are formed. Separating and isolating ourselves from others anchors it further in consciousness. You separate yourself from others by building walls or barriers in your heart where the light of Truth cannot enter.

Thinking that the ego must be annihilated also locks you into separation because the ego is your personality and a healthy sense of self is essential. This dream of ego annihilation is created by the ego which strengthens its walls of separation from the Truth of who you are.

Fear not though, as the ego can be tamed through a greater revelation of Truth or Spirit. This Truth must become more interesting to you than the drama of the day. Step away from the drama buffet.  You must be more interested in Spirit than the conditions and circumstances that you find less than pleasing. Why wouldn’t you be? The Truth is as eternal and vast as the space that spans beyond the myriad universes. It is infinite potentiality and pure possibility. The drama is the same ole, same ole. Isn’t it time to release the mundane and welcome your spiritual magnificence?

God’s will is always for the freer, fuller, more expressed, expanded, higher version of self. It leads us to a happy, whole, prosperous, joyful, loving, compassionate, and free life. Its ideas and vision are for the greater good of you and the world around you. God’s will does not harm anyone in any way and wants to shine through and as you. Will you let it?

Thy will be done. May the deepest, most authentic will, which rests in the heart of me, and is the very nature of God, be done.

And so it is.

Rev. Elizabeth Rowley
