“It is helpful if you do the following: Let us say that you are working with anger. When you catch yourself thinking an angry thought, you stop and you don’ say, ‘Oh, there you go again, dummy.’ You don’t do that. You stop and you say, ‘Holy Spirit, I give you this thought. Transform it into its holiness.’ And then you forget about it.
You may be working with fear and your fear presents itself in worry, concern, what if I do this, should I do that? Those are fear thoughts, puppy fear thoughts, but they are fear thoughts and they hide the monster of the real fear. You may not know what the real fear is. You don’t need to know. You take that fear and you say to the Holy Spirit, ‘I am experiencing fear. I ask you to take it and transform it to its holiness.’
If you must do this a million times a day, then you do it. Each time you find yourself not living as the child of God but rather living in fear or deception of any kind – you deceive yourselves more than you ever deceive anyone else – whenever you are aware of this, you say that affirmation.
Now, it doesn’t take months or years for this to work because the Holy Spirit is timeless. It is eternal and it knows no restrictions. Therefore the work of the Holy Spirit is instantaneous. It happens like that.
I could point out your fear... It takes different forms depending on how your personality has created its universe of thought patterns. But nonetheless, you are basically dealing with fear. Now my time with you is growing short and you greatly need to live the child of God of you on a moment to moment basis. The thing is, Beloveds, you are responsible for you. The Holy Spirit is responsible for keeping you and God connected because it is through the Holy Spirit that you make your way back in your consciousness to God.
Have you not often wondered how one gets into a state of absolute knowingness? Well, the Holy Spirit is the way you get to absolute knowingness because the Holy Spirit is the highest aspect of yourself in terms of individuality. In other words, the Holy Spirit is that connectedness that makes you know you are an individual and yet at the same time know that you are connected to the light. Indeed, you are the light. And that light is connected to the darkness which is the unmanifest.
In that unmanifest is potential beyond your wildest dreams and that potential will give you anything, anything at all… Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are using your creative ability constantly. But you have created for yourselves snares and entrapments that make you think you are bound and limited. It has been said, ‘You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.’ I am teaching you truth. This is how things work and this is how you in your knowing of their workings can make for yourselves your universe of joy and abundance and happiness.”
