I think maybe you should know more about this.
Let me tell you of an experience. When I read this post, of course, the
first sentences struck me as I sometimes skim read much of the material
posted here. I could hear a voice - the voice of my presence - my "divine
inner" perhaps telling me that the correct response to you would be
something like "You should know." Although I don't communicate with you
much as of yet, I didn't think it was appropriate to jeopardize our harmony
(in silence) just so that I could speak sarcastically on the internet and
get out the message to you that "You should know." So, in a way what you
say is true. Our outer does try to usurp the inner. Sometimes we place our
values in one virtue such as harmony, over and above our duty and obedience
to encourage "learning." And this is the effect that your statement drew
out of me. =20
A much more positive approach to dealings which we have with our inner
divine is to say, "Beloved Mighty I Am Presence Make me perfectly obedient
in all things." (and alongside of this idea I like to tell the Presence -
) "I give this light from you recognition and feel Its presence here! I
love it! I thank It for Its boundless Blessings in the Universe! I demand
It be Eternally, Invincibly Protected and fulfill the Divine Plan, to
illumine all with Eternal Freedom!"
I may not be wise and happy, but there is wisdom within me and I am happy
to know "IT."
This is what I can accomplish with decree work.
So efforts are made to protect oneself and=20
